Funeral Home Owner Receives Recognition

This week, Joe Messenger of Gaylord Community Funeral Home received recognition for his outstanding efforts to give back to his community. A few things he did to give back were giving a VFW Commander a proper burial at his own expense, donating a plaque at the new VFW Pavilion in the Commander’s honor, and donating a large flag and flagpole to the new VFW property.
