Patriotism, pride and appreciation toward the many United State veterans who have represented the country were the focus at Fairview CIC’s Independence Day Celebration Saturday. The day opened with a flag ceremony raising the American flag and a POW flag, as well as reciting the "Pledge of Allegiance." Emcee Randy England recognized three World War II veterans, Hugh Stubblefield, Harold Griffith and Paul Jones, while Ronnie Powell introduced all veterans gathered around the flag pole.
