County Servicemen are Honored
On January 9, a yellow bow was put up in front of the Clinton County Courthouse in honor of all Clinton County Veterans and those now serving in the military.
The officeholders and employees of the Clinton County Courthouse feel that, as the courthouse is centrally located and represents all the citizens of Clinton County, something should be done at the courthouse to show our support for our citizens who are now serving in the Persian Gulf.
Please call 539-3716 or write to P.O. Box 436 and give the name of those you know from Clinton County who are now serving in the Persian Gulf and their names and towns will be posted in the courthouse windows on Main Street. For each name received, we will tie a yellow ribbon for that person on the tree branches on the north side of the courthouse.
The families and the public are invited to attend and assist in tying the first group of ribbons on the Clinton County Support Tree at 1 p.m. on Thursday, January 24. The tree is located on the north side of the courthouse.
Help make this our "Clinton County Support Tree" to our servicemen and women who are serving in the Persian Gulf...
This is the list of names of men and women now serving in the Persian Gulf: Brad Hudson, Excelsior Springs; Maurice Tillman, Plattsburg; Jim Reavey, Plattsburg; Casey Woods, Plattsburg; Mark Woods, Plattsburg; Brian Smith, Lathrop; Roy Shipps, Gower; Ken Hulse, Lathrop, Whitney Wolf, Lathrop; Wayne Cogdill, Gower; Allen Bland, Lathrop; Richard A. Miller, Holt; Patrick Boyd, Cameron; Wesley Morris, Plattsburg; Zack Sims, Lathrop.
These are names of the support group:
Clinton County Supports Servicemen or Women... County-wide show of support for those in the Persian Gulf began today at the Clinton County Courthouse with the placing of the first yellow ribbon on the Clinton County historical sign in front of the courthouse. Ribbons for each of the servicemen and women will be place on the tree behind the sign (shown above) at a dedication Thursday, January 24.
The Leader will mail weekly copies of their publication to those serving in the Armed Forces. Please forward their address to the Leader.
Placing the first ribbon were, left to right: Terry Houghton, Presiding Commissioner, Carolyn DeFreece of the Assessor's Office, Molly Livingston of the County Clerk's Office and Jerry Howard, Assessor.
