AMBOY — The North Clark Historical Museum and Mt. Valley Grange 79 hosted their 35th annual community celebration Nov. 5 to honor the area’s local military veterans.

The event included a pie and ice cream social in the basement of the grange, followed by presentations by local speakers, live music performed by the Amboy Middle School Band, and a flag presentation by The American Legion Tum Tum Post 168.

North county organizations were recognized for their contributions to the community.

All attending veterans received a free raffle ticket for the chance to win a special patriotic quilt made and donated by Chelatchie Quilters.

There was also a raffle for the quilt “Wild Flowers” as part of a fundraiser for the North Clark Historical Museum. Proceeds from the raffle, which was open to all, went toward supplementing the Capital Improvement Fund.
