  • Flat Run Veterans Park sign was a contribution of many

    To the editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who were involved in funding and installing the sign and platforms for benches and trash cans at Flat Run Veterans Park. First, I would like to thank United Community Fund for donating $1,000 toward this endeavor. Also, thank you to the County Fiscal Court and the City Council for agreeing to pay half of the remaining balance, which was a very generous amount. Your kind attention was appreciated.

    Thanks to Steve Snapp for designing a sign that is great looking and one in which we can be proud of.
