Veterans honored at Bakersville Homecoming

| August 11, 2014

BAKERSVILLE – The Bakersville Homecoming, held Aug. 8-10, was a time to raise funds for the Bakersville Volunteer Fire Department and the Bakersville Community Park, enjoy good food and fellowship, watch tractors demonstrate their power and pay tribute to veterans. On Aug. 8, there was a pause in the tractor pull action to honor local veterans, especially World War II and Korean veterans. “If you served our country, this is our night to say thank you to you,” said Larry Stahl, who was the master of ceremonies. “The pull committee has wanted to do this for some time. We lost a lot of people last year and two of them were veterans. As time passes we are losing more and more World War II and Korean veterans. We wanted to say thank you while we still have you here.” A special ceremony honoring Vietnam Veterans will be planned for the future.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
