Captain Mark McNally, U.S. Navy, Retired, was the guest speaker at the Memorial Day Service held at the American Legion Teachenor Post 376 Monday morning.

In front of what had to be one of the larger crowds in the last several years, the Memorial Day Service at the Shelbina American Legion Teachenor Post 376 was very well done from beginning to end.
   Gale Buckman was the master of ceremonies for the event. He introduced Albin Covington, who opened the ceremony with a prayer. That was followed by the Pledge of Allegiance recited by all who attended.
   Buckman went over the meaning of the POW table that was set up in front of the podium for all to see.
   Buckman read the Post Memorial Pledge to the group.
   That was followed by Charles Hawkins and Mary Dunaway who sang “America The Beautiful.”
   A presentation for long term continuous membership awards were given to five people. Larry Holman received a 50 year award (which was accepted by his wife in his absence), Marvin Wood for 60 years, Danton Vandiver for 60 years, Harold Echternacht for 60 years and J.D. Davis for 70 years. Davis wasn’t present to accept the award.
   Guest speaker Mark McNally of Monroe City talked to the people about the importance of Memorial Day. He noted that a lot of the people who weren’t at Monday’s event don’t know how to handle Memorial Day. He talked about the importance of remembering those who gave their lives for our country and the freedoms it has.
   McNally, who now is the General Manager of the Clarence Cannon Wholesale Water Plant, talked about his time that he served in the United States Navy.

Milk Source, LLC has announced it has reached an agreement to purchase the dairy cow herd and operation from Sharpe Holdings, based in La Belle.
   “This is an exciting purchase for us,” Milk Source Partner Jim Ostrom said of the acquisition of the 5,200-plus cow operation.
   Ostrom, along with partners John Vosters and Todd Willer, said that the farm will be named LaBelle Dairy because of Milk Source’s tradition of naming farms after the communities in which they reside.
   “Our plan is to build on the foundation that was started by the late Charles Sharpe with Heartland Dairy and have La Belle be seen as one of the finest dairy farms in the country,” said Ostrom.
   “We want our neighbors to know we are there and proud to be a part of their community,” he said.
   The synergy that is created through the purchase will be of tremendous value to the community, Ostrom said.
   “This is a great agricultural area and we will be able to utilize the exceptional crop farmers, such as Sharpe Holdings, within just a few miles of our farm to obtain the needed feed for our animals, and these same farmers will be able to purchase the valuable nutrients they need for their crops from the farm,” he said. “We look forward to this new relationship.”
   Ostrom said that Milk Source is planning many upgrades to the farm in the next 18-24 months, including a new milking parlor and renovation on all of the buildings. He said the farm will employ between 40 and 60 people.
