Brian Wingard, right, executive vice president and chief financial officer of CNB Bank, presented a check to John Rowles, commander of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 1785, and Betina Nicklas, commander of American Legion Post No. 6. The funds donated by CNB will be used toward Project Wall, a joint effort by the American Legion Post No. 6, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter No. 974 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 1785 to help construct a new veterans honor roll wall. The new wall will replace the current wall which has been there since 1966. It no longer has room to adequately immortalize the men and women enlisting in the military and serving in future wars. For more information or to contribute, contact an officer at the American Legion Post No. 6 at 765-2590. (Submitted photo)
