Jackson County Farm Bureau Makes Donation to the Veterans War Memorial

 

Jackson County Farm Bureau made a $2500 donation to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV). The money will be used to update the Jackson County Veteran’s War Memorial. The DAV is in the process of adding new panels which will include more names of Jackson County Veterans. These panels will have names that date back to the Civil War.

Jackson County Farm Bureau is proud to honor our local men and women who have served in the Armed Forces.

 

Brenda Ayers, Jackson County Farm Bureau Agency Manager, presented the donation which was accepted by Bobby Lakes and James Bryant of the DAV.
