Saturday, Sept. 14, was Veterans Appreciation Day at Spooner’s Veterans Hall. A picnic was held, and the AMVET Post flag was retired and replaced. Veterans Bill Hoyt and Dave Hanson lowered the weathered flag to be retired, and Dave Hanson burned the flag, as protocol requires. A new flag was then raised. Post Commander John Leckel addressed the crowd, leading them in the Pledge of Allegiance and national anthem. Adrianna Scalzo helped serve hotdogs, burgers, and brats. [Photos by Bill Thornley]
