I would like to take this time to give an update on the Freedom Rock for Union County.

The rock is at the welcome center in Creston. I cannot tell you how heart warming it is to be a part of this community for all the donations and time put in by local residents. A total of more than $10,000 has been donated.

A special thank you to Jesse Giza for bringing the rock in, American Concrete for donating the concrete and Kirby Berry and his crew for laying the pad. All of this was donated time and equipment.

We are now forming a committee to help in designing what will be painted on the Freedom Rock.

Again, thank you to everyone for your patriotism.
