100 years of Heroes:
 
One hundred years ago a cease fire was declared to call and end to World War I. Church bells around the world rang in celebration at the arrival of peace after four long years.  As the county remembers the armistice declared on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 – a day that became the foundation of Veterans Day – we pause to reflect, remember and pay tribute to all those who have served our country. Thank you for your service!!!
