Prescott in Brief: Town halls and flu shot community clinics

Town halls and flu shot community clinics

Supervisor Rowle Simmons has two remaining annual Town Halls and three Flu Shot Community Clinics for 2018. Town Halls are important to the community as they allow residents to ask questions and get answers and to learn about the functions of Yavapai County Government. Come out and ask questions and speak to your Supervisor. All are invited to attend. Congress Town Hall – 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18 at the Fire Station, located at 26733 Santa Fe Road.Wilhoit Town Hall – 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23 at the Fire Station, located at 9000 S. Magby Lane. Please note, the Flu Shot Clinic starts at 5 p.m.

Benefits:  The annual flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get the seasonal flu and spread it to others.  The more people who get vaccinated against the flu, the less the flu will spread throughout the community.

Seeking Prescott High School fallen soldiers

A proclamation honoring and remembering the 55 Prescott High School fallen soldiers on Veterans Day, Nov. 11 is under construction by researcher and historian Betty Bourgault. If the proclamation is approved, it will be read at the Board of Supervisors Meeting held on Nov. 7.

Betty is seeking any additional names and family contacts of those high school students who lost their lives while serving in the armed forces from the following wars: Word War I and II, Korean, Vietnam and the Global War on Terror. It would be very unfortunate, if a single veteran, who deserves to be honored, fails to be acknowledged, simply because he or she was unknown to this project. Betty is, also, looking to find photos of these fallen heroes, either a yearbook photo or one in a military uniform.

Following is the list of the 55 Prescott High School students known to this project: WWI: Howard M. Draper, Ernest A. Love, Howard E. Morrow, and Jacob K. Theobald. WWII: William S. Allee, Raul J. Berumen, William C. Boom, Clifton A. Collins, Claude L. Diskin, Raymond Earle, Richard E. Espinosa, Russell B. Felton, Thomas C. Hawke, Edward M. Hines, Raymond Howard, Wesley A. Kleinkauf, Chester A. Knight, Jr., Johnnie Kuban, John McCarty, Robert D. Madrid, George A. McKenzie, Gail C. McLain, Robert A. Metzger, Paul W. Nye, Donald D. Pearsall, Robert M. Perkins, William E. Price, Albert L. Pruitt, Charles K. Pyatt, David R. Salazar, Frank Sardou, Frank Schiel, Jr., William H. Stevens, Douglas G. Stratton, Rudolph Tezak, Gale M. Tinney, Frank S. Turner and Owen Weldon Watkins. KOREAN: Jesse M. Gaitan, and Juan Rivera. VIETNAM: Fortino J. Apolinar, Henry D. Banks, Howard R. Bisjak, James Scott Brown, Steven W. Dundas, James W. Fenton, Larry L. Hobbs, William H. Hollmen, David A. Johnson, William Arun Jordan, William Everett Martin, John J. Roberts and Antonio G. Yescas. Global war on terror: Stephen J. Raderstorf.
