To the Editor:
This past weekend, I had my 6- and 9-year-old granddaughters staying with me in Eldora. It was a nice day last Sunday so I suggested we walk out to the Veteran Memorial site to see the latest progress. They followed the sidewalk around to the bench that had just been installed. The new bench is beautiful and has the words to “America the Beautiful” inscribed around the edges of it. At first, we spoke the words as we started around the bench, but within no time, we were singing the rest of the song! We were loud and proud at that moment, with the warmth of the sun and the blue sky above us.
