Area business sets up memorial

Sunday, May 1, 2011

A local business is getting in the spirit.

Computer Central, 537 E. National Ave., plans to construct a memorial for soldiers from Clay County in anticipation of the Loyalty Day Parade, scheduled for Saturday.

Computer Central owner David Lewis hopes to have the display, called "Serving Our Community by Serving Our Country," up for viewing by Monday.

Currently, Lewis said he has eight soldiers' photographs that will be part of the display.

Lewis said he has plans for a banner and the photographs of soldiers. He said more are welcome.

"I'd really like to get as many as I could," Lewis said. "If people bring in a picture, (we'll add it)."

Lewis said the business put up a display a few years ago after several local soldiers were called to duty in Iraq.

"Generally, people that have seen the (displays) liked them," Lewis said. "When we did it before, we had several people come in. We've done this before, but I thought I'd push it a little bit."

Lewis said anyone interested in having a loved one placed in the display should bring a photograph to the office or e-mail david@claycomputercentral.net.

"I'm making it up as I go along," he said. "But it will be on display in our business' front window."

Loyalty Day

The annual V.F.W. Post 1127 Loyalty Day Parade will take place at 2 p.m., Saturday.

The theme for this year's parade is "Welcome Home Vets -- 1919-2011."

The lineup for the parade will gather at 1 p.m., at the corner of National Avenue and Depot Street.
