Candler County Historical Society, along with VFW Post 5893 and American Legion Post 108, will hold an Open House at the History Museum on Saturday, November 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to honor all veterans.

The celebration will feature four Silver Star recipients from Candler County: James Robert Hendrix, Dean Martin, Melvin E. Bunn and Travis Crosby. All veterans and the public are invited.

Help is needed to identify and locate any other Silver Star recipients in Candler County. Contact Graham Daniell at 685-4343, so they may be included in the program at the Museum on Nov. 9.
