The county has received a $500 donation from the local Woodmen of the World Family Fraternity which will go toward the purchase of a curtain for the stage in the county complex auditorium.

Regina Wilhite, Field Representative for Woodmen of the World and local chapter President Wanda Poss presented the check to County Mayor Mike Foster during Monday night's county commission meeting.

"On behalf of our membership in DeKalb County, we want to say thank you to the county for always supporting us when we are doing fraternal work here in the county and for keeping us abreast of anywhere a new flag is needed so that we can keep Old Glory flying here in this county very proudly," said Wilhite.

"We are here to give you a donation toward the curtains at the new community center. On behalf of our membership Ms. Wanda Poss has a check for $500. Thank you for what you do and thank you for allowing us to be a part of the county," Wilhite said.

County Mayor Foster said with donations like this and the recent Aloha 40 fundraiser, featuring the Stamps Quartet, the county has raised more than half the money needed to purchase the stage curtain. This brings our total past $14,000. Of course we've got to pay expenses out of that. The curtains are $12,800 and it looks like after all the expenses with paying the Stamps Quartet and all the things we did, it looks like we're probably going to be at about $6,600 (in funds raised) to go toward those curtains," said Foster.

Meanwhile, a special Woodmen of the World observance is planned for September 9 at 6:00 p.m. at the city fire hall in Smithville.

"I will ask you to put on your calendars now on September 9 that we will be having our "In Honor and Remembrance" program. We have a special presentation we're going to be doing at the city fire hall at 6:00 p.m. It will be our annual presentation to honor the police, fire, rescue and everyone in this community who gives of their time in that special way. Its our time to say thank you to them," concluded Wilhite.
