Parade marks fine traditionPublished 11:22am Wednesday, June 4, 2014
What a legacy for our small river city: Almost 150 years of an untold number of men and women dedicating time and energy.
Every year this old town comes to life for a rich traditional service to all the men and women who served their beloved country. One hundred and forty-seven years of countless dedication spent by our brothers and sisters.
Remember fellow Irontonians, our volunteers and loved ones proudly served, with all giving some and some giving all.
We need to thank God Almighty for our beloved veterans, living and deceased.
We veterans thank one and all for their yearly commitment to such a blessed tribute. May those who follow maintain the outstanding volunteer-centered and positive attitude. We are proud of you and Ironton anxiously awaits 150 years of such a fine city celebration.
