Corriher Grange hosts Mault, honors veterans

Submitted

CHINA GROVE — Corriher Grange No. 627 met on Saturday, Nov. 4, opening with the Pledge of Allegiance. Shelby Karriker led the devotional on the Thanksgiving season. Program director Vinnie Duncan presented a history on Armistice Day, now celebrated as Veterans Day. Veterans in attendance were recognized and celebrated by receiving a Thank You for your Service coin and a rousing applause. Four of the 12 veterans in attendance served in WWII : Paul Campbell, Kenneth Corriher, Hoke Karriker, and Philip Sloop.

Bobby Mault provided members and guests with the story of the beginning of The Price of Freedom Museum, which opened in 2006 and is housed in the old Patterson School on Weaver Road. Bobby told of current auditorium renovations and the addition of the “three-room house,” depicting how a home might have looked during WWII. During the year, every 5th grader in Rowan County visits the Museum; so far more than 12,000 have visited.

Bobby was honored with the Community Citizen Award for his dedication, personal involvement and outstanding service to the community and mankind. This award is presented on behalf of the National Grange, NC State Grange and members of Corriher Grange.

On Dec. 1 at 7 p.m., Corriher Grange and community members will meet for their annual Christmas program, including the Christmas Nativity and a visit from Santa Claus.
