Happy Flag Day! The Continental Congress issued a resolution on the basic design for a flag on this day in 1777. Of course, the stars on the "Stars and Stripes" have changed over the years, but the flag has been inspiring patriotic Americans for generations.

A small collection, processed as part of an NHPRC grant to Michigan's Clements Library, contains a few dozen items from Samuel Francis Smith, who composed the lyrics for "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" ("America"), set to the music for "God Save the Queen." The song was first performed on July 4, 1831 by a children's choir in Boston.

Included in the collection are many items pertain to the song, such as holograph copies of the lyrics signed by the author and a facsimile of its first printed version. Other items include handwritten copies of the poem "The Eve of Decoration Day" and the hymn "The Morning Light is Breaking."

The flags are back up and a new stone has been added in Bushong!!!

The flag poles at the North Lyon County Veteran’s Memorial had been removed for the winter to let the fresh concrete continue to cure. We did not want the wind to use the poles to stress the frozen foundation while it continued to cure. The poles are up and the flags are giving strength to the spring winds overlooking our gloriously improved community.

We have added a new stone and hope to add another before our Memorial Day Fish Fry. Come on out to the Fish Fry on May 26th to see which ones have been added. The Fish Fry will be held at the park next to the Memorial on Sunday, May 26th from noon to 3 pm. This will be a free-will donation fundraiser with Veteran's eating free! We will also serve hamburgers for those who would prefer an alternative to fish. Expect all the fixins to go with! BRING YOUR SHOES – yep, clean out the closet and gather up those old shoes you no longer wear. An organization that recycles and provides shoes to the poor has offered to contribute $1,000 to the Memorial if we can collect 100 bags of shoes by August 31st.

Our annual Car Show and Concert Fundraiser will be on September 28th also at the park in Bushong next to the Veteran's Memorial. It is always an exciting time. We are always looking to add vendors and performers! And if you got a vehicle you would like to show off let us know, we still have plenty of room!

The Big News!!!! --- North Lyon County Veteran's Memorial Project has been accepted into the Emporia Community Foundation!!!! Yep, you read that correctly! We now have help with accounting, fundraising and most importantly, the future. Long after our Memorial is complete, long after all of our board members and volunteers have aged and passed, the Veteran's Memorial will be tended to and cared for by the Emporia Community Foundation!
ECF has invited us to participate in the Match Day Fundraiser on November 11th at the Flint Hills Mall. All donations collected for North Lyon County Veteran's Memorial Project on that day will be added to by the Emporia Community Foundation. We are very excited to participate!

The progress on the Veteran's Memorial Project has come along very nicely. So much so, that plans have been made to convert the old bank building next door to the Memorial. After the Memorial is complete, we will get to work on a Veteran's Museum!

We have also reached out to Kansas State Parks and Recreation; we are exploring ideas such as getting a sign placed on the Rail Trail for the Veteran's Memorial. It is an exciting year at the Veteran's Memorial Project in Bushong! Hope to see everyone at the Fish Fry on May 26th!

Don't forget the big dates:
May 26 Fish Fry - Bushong Park noon - 3 pm
Aug 31 Deadline for Shoe Drive
Sep 28 Car Show and Concert - Bushong Park 10 am - 5 pm
Nov 11 Match Day - Flint Hill Mall Emporia

Come to our sloppy joe dinner sat the masons will be selling to win this sweet car $20.00 a ticket for another great cause.off course im going to win my dream car right here lol.

Yes, this is the actual car that is being given away this year by the Kansas Freemasons. It is a 1960 Corvette convertible with a 4 speed V8 engine putting out 230 Horsepower. Yes, this is a head turner even before starting the engine.

Ticket packets have been mailed out to every Kansas Mason and the selling can start as soon as they arrive. The big win is that $15 of EVERY $20 ticket stays in the local community it is sold in.
