Often times our members and volunteers leave an indelible mark on us and the community. Then there are ones like James “Chip” Merrithew, who served his community above and beyond the call. When Chip passed the Center mourned with his family, friends, and the community he touched. This week we were humbled and honored to have a new flag, raised in his honor on a new pole, replacing the old rusted pole and weathered flag. This new flag reminds us of the commitment to service that lived deep in his heart and radiated from him. His work and memory will live on with the Center and in the hearts of those who knew him.
The Center thanks his family for so selflessly thinking of us when considering how to honor their beloved Chip.
