Kate West Staff Writer Chester Lions Hugh Eltgroth, Jan Hammill, Jim Benner and Keith Crummer visited three local elementary schools in late May to offer Chester Lions Flag Day presentations to fourth- and fifth-grade classes. As part of their annual program, the club members present "Old Glory" and explain the flag's colors, symbols and history. In the next segment of the presentation, the Lions explained the meanings of the words and history of the flag salute and finished up their presentation by leading the classes in the flag salute. "We do this each year to support the teachers in aiding their students' understanding of these historic and patriotic symbols," Lion Keith Crummer said.

"The focus of this community service activity is to support our local teachers and give the students a better understanding of the history and founding principles of our nation. "Often the meaning of the-various symbols on our flag and the now somewhat antiquated words and phrases spoken in the flag salute are not fully understood," he said. Crummer also said the presented history reaches back to the founding of the United States of America and the struggles both without and within the nation that continue to this day. The Chester Lions make this an annual service to local teachers, students and the nation.

"The lawns at Church and Main streets in downtown Quincy come to life with vendors selling the freshest locally grown fruit and vegetables," says market manager Hannah Hepner. "There are also crafters offering everything from heavenly body care products to handspun yarn and handsome birdhouses. There's the option to kick back and get a massage or throw out a picnic blanket, order dinner and listen to the live entertainment." The first market will feature tunes from the Fish Tacos. The "regulars" -- Kenny Davis, Lance Barker, Ken Cawley, Barney Harchis and Adrienne Johnson -- play on Monday nights at Pangaea car6 and Pub along with anyone who wants to join in. This year Hepner is excited to announce that the market offers dollar-for-dollar SNAP and WIC benefit matching, more shady spots to relax and chairs for senior citizens. "We also have excellent prizes for our twice-nightly giveaway," says Hepner, "Entering the giveaway is as easy as making a purchase from any of the vendors and asking for a ticket." The farmers' market takes place each Thursday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. June 12- Aug. 28. A full schedule of entertainment throughout the summer is in place.
