Civic club donates to 9/11 memorial project

Lions Club 2 Lions Club 1 A civic organization has come through with a$1 thousand donation to the Oconee County committee raising money for a 9/11 memorial to be erected adjacent to what will be the new home for Walhalla High School. The donation by the Salem Lions Club, in a sense, is no surprise, for it was that organization that first suggested the project. A check was presented by Lions Club President John Harris to Carl Halvorsen, a fellow club member who represents the club on the 9/11 committee. Fundraising is underway. You can contribute by calling Brett McLaughlin of the 9/11 committee at 985-2446 or through the website
