“Sharing gratitude for those who have served and are still serving today, for our freedom should be something we celebrate every day.
“Join me and thank a veteran, a first responder, a politician for their service and for the sacrifices they make along with their families every single day.
“God bless you and your families as you enjoy the summer’s activities.”
—John hughes, Mayor, Town of Dewey humboldt
