Last Wednesday was a day of Calhoun Pride!

Students at Calhoun Middle/High School organized a prayer group, “Meet Me At the Pole.” The planners were expecting about 20 participants, but were overwhelmed when 60 students, educators, and residents turned out at the early hour of 7:30 for the purpose of prayer.

The prayers were heartfelt and sincere, and included every aspect of their lives. This is an annual affair, but because of the interest, it may be held more often. We are proud of young people who are not afraid to voice their faith in God and ask for His guidance.

It was announced on Monday evening last week that the Veterans of Foreign Wars wanted to erect a flagpole and dedicate a flag at Grantsville Community Park. When the Chronicle received word on Tuesday evening that the event would be held the next day at 1 p.m., it was a pleasant surprise. It was heartwarming to watch the speed and cooperation of this group of men as they worked. They had set several other poles that morning.

The men had all served their country in the military, and their pride in this smaller service was important to them. All stood very erect and gave a snappy salute to the flag, as they represented servicemen through the ages. We thank you all.
