Carrollton’s American Legion Post No. 41 commander Raymond Meadows recently acquired memorabilia from the daughter of World War I veteran Knoble Garriott. Included in the memorabilia was the original charter of Bedford’s Lorraine Post No. 75 of the American Legion.
The post was chartered Jan. 27, 1920, with 18 men listed on the charter.
Meadows said he visited with Trimble County Judge-Executive Jerry Powell and Sheriff Tim Coons and neither knew anything about the Bedford American Legion Post.
Kroger, Hwy. 227 in Carrollton, is holding a yard sale/cookout, from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 9, and from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, May 23. The Relay for Life team will be selling purple bows for $5.
There will be a memory board located behind the U Scan. For a $1 donation, the name of a loved one who has been touched by cancer will be added. This board is on display now until May 30.
All proceeds to benefit the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. For more information, call (502) 347-9742.
