I bought two bricks on Flag Day — one for my dad, who was a Marine, and one for my father-in-law, who served in the Army during World War II — to honor their service and to benefit the fundraising efforts to enhance the Livingston County Veterans Monument.
I waited until Flag Day to buy the bricks because Dr. Thomas Kellogg was having a special match event at his Howell dental office. Those of you who stopped in to make a donation can vouch for the amazing vibe at the event.
So successful was the event that it smashed through its original goal of matching up to $10,000 for the Livingston County Veterans Memorial.
Checks must be made out to “Howell Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation,” which is serving as the project’s fiduciary. All donations to the project are tax-deductible. For more information, go to howell.org.

I am looking forward to visiting the Veterans Monument after it’s enhanced to see the bricks I bought on Flag Day for two of the important men in my life. And I am thankful to Dr. Kellogg for doubling my contribution.
