June 14, 2019 - The month of June is filled with reunions whether they are family or school alumni or organizations. So, it is the same for Daniels School Alumni Reunion. Every two years many of the past students of C H Daniels High and Elementary come together to 'Keep the Legacy Alive'. This year the committee is celebrating 50 years since the school closed with the last graduating class of 1968. Since the class of 1969 had spent 11 years there, they will be honored as well. Certificates will be given. Other classes will be recognized as always. The events will begin on Friday, July 5 and culminate on Saturday with a banquet in Windham Civic Center beginning at 5 pm. The committee shown will welcome everyone to attend. For more information contact Joyce Johnson or Shirley Hewitt.
June 14, 2019 - In the United States, flag day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on June 14, 1777.
The United States Army also celebrates their 244th birthday today having been established June 14, 1775.
In 1916, president Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as flag day. In August 1946, national Flag Day was established by an act of congress but is not an official federal holiday.
Today as we have in past years, new flags will be hoisted by Post Commander Gene Hutto.
The group then recited the Pledge of Allegiance to our newly rasied United States Flag.

Statistics say that 21.3% of people in Shelby County live in a food insecure home. This means that we have people in our community that are hungry and not sure where their next meal will come from.
On June 21st and 22nd donations can be made at Brookshire Brothers and Wal-Mart. Help us “Stomp Out Hunger” by donating canned foods, non-perishable food items, or monetary donations! Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
Come by the tables and donated any canned goods or non-perishable items for Hunger Awareness Week! Every canned item will help "Stomp Out Hunger" here in Shelby County! Thank you for your support and God Bless!
