A beautiful Saturday afternoon led to a great Veteran’s Day Ceremony at the Lake Taylorville Veteran’s Memorial. Jeff and Phyllis Wilson from the Salvage Dawgs were honored. Small Town Taylorville’s Steve Craggs MC’ed the Ceremony and spoke about the hard work that the Salvage Dawgs have taken on.
Craggs says that over $86,000 has been distributed to veterans and to veteran services.
Bruce Barry, Taylorville Mayor, recognized the hard work that veterans do for the city of Taylorville including help after the tornado, and other needs throughout the community. The ceremony wrapped up with the 21-gun salute and the playing of Taps, by trumpeter and veteran Leroy Kleimola.
