The 10th annual Military Ball was held April 12 at the Fest Building in Spring Grove. There were 155 in attendance at the event hosted by friends of the American Legion. At one week shy of 93 years of age, Valborg Clauson of Spring Grove was honored as the oldest military supporter in attendance and presented a cased U.S. flag. Clauson's husband was a WWII veteran. Other family members who served in the military include a brother, son, sons-in-law, and grandsons. For many years, she was very active in the American Legion Auxiliary and leader of the Junior Legion Auxiliary. She has attended all 10 of the military balls that have been held at Spring Grove. The honoree is shown with the presenters, John Geiwitz, left, and Lyle Ellis. Watch next week's Herald for a complete write-up on the event.
