$7,500 donated toward Legion bus


The Wilmington American Legion Post 49 in Wilmington will be able to use an improved bus unit, thanks to a $7,500 donation from the tobacco corporation Altria Group. A check presentation was held Thursday at the post. From left are Nicole Kendell with Altria, Wilmington Mayor John Stanforth, Charlie Lakatos, Post Commander Jim Cook, Wayne Davidson, Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives Cliff Rosenberger (R-Clarksville), Michael Sutton, Paul Butler, Wilmington City Council President Randy Riley, Clinton County Commissioner Kerry Steed, and Linda Laurianti with Altria. About a year ago, the Wilmington Church of Christ donated a 2000 Ford bus, which now can be upgraded with the funds. The honor guard uses a bus to travel to cemeteries for funerals of veterans. Rosenberger said a better bus will help the honor guard provide valuable support and ensure veterans receive a proper burial and the dignity they have merited.
