Citizen of the Year
This page is from one of my Aunt Joan’s genealogy books. This is the back side of the Emily Mildred Ashby Vinson, Family Group Sheet, in one of the Ashby volumes.
Mrs. Vinson Honored As Citizen of the Year at Annual VFW Banquet Saturday
It’s pretty common to be honored after you have passed on, but how much more special to receive honors in person.
When I was young I always wanted to meet all my mom & dad’s “back East” relatives. As I do research and find more and more stories about each of them that longing just increases.
