The hum of friendly conversation filled the gymnasium at<br />

Sharon Mennonite Church on May 20 as approximately 50 Vietnam<br />

War era veterans and their loved ones enjoyed lunch, courtesy of<br />

the Plain City chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution<br />

(DAR).<br />

The occasion was part of an ongoing nationwide commemoration<br />

of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War era which started on<br />

Nov. 1, 1955, and ended on May 15, 1975. The last combat units<br />

from the United States left South Vietnam on March 29, 1973.<br />

In 2012, President Barack Obama signed a proclamation setting<br />

the commemoration period as Memorial Day 2012 to Veterans Day<br />

2025. Organizations throughout the country have been holding<br />

events to honor those who served, their families, and the organizations<br />

and allies who provided support during the war.<br />

“We want to give (the veterans) the honor and tribute they did<br />

not receive at the time,” said Janet Kaufman, Plain City DAR regent<br />

and organizer of the May 20 event.<br />

After lunch, the hum in the gymnasium quieted as the recognition<br />

program began. Lt. Col. Ken Bonnell with the Union County<br />

Military Family Support Group served as guest speaker. Bonnell’s<br />

military service includes two tours of duty in Vietnam. He is the recipient<br />

of six awards for bravery and two Purple Heart medals,<br />

Summerford<br />

sewer project<br />

starts this fall<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

Sanitary sewer service is coming to Summerford.<br />

Construction is scheduled to start<br />

in August and take approximately a year to<br />

complete.<br />

Currently, Summerford residents have<br />

private septic systems and private water<br />

wells. <strong>Madison</strong> County officials have determined<br />

residents are at risk of their septic<br />

systems contaminating their water wells or<br />

their neighbors’ water wells.<br />

“Summerford has a high density of housing<br />

in a small geographic area. Most of the<br />

96 homes are on a quarter or a third of an<br />

acre which puts everyone’s septic system<br />

close to their drinking water wells,” said<br />

Rob Slane, county administrator. “What<br />

could happen is that when a septic system<br />

fails and leaches into the ground, it could<br />

leach into water wells on site.”<br />

This past winter, a couple of private<br />

water wells in the area tested positive for E.<br />

coli, a bacteria that can pose health risks,<br />

he noted.<br />

To fix the situation, the county plans to<br />

expand the sanitary sewer district that<br />

serves Lake Choctaw to include Summerford.<br />

The project will include running sewer<br />

lines and installing grinder pumps and<br />

basins at all of the houses in Summerford.<br />

The estimated cost of the project is<br />

$3,949,422. Because Summerford is a lowto<br />

moderate-income community, the county<br />

sought government funding to cover as<br />

much of the project cost as possible to eliminate<br />

any financial burden on residents for<br />

the sewer improvements.<br />

The county was able to secure $3,790,000<br />

in grants and other funding and will use<br />

county funds to cover the remaining<br />

$159,422. This means no cost to residents<br />

for the sewer improvements.<br />

The funding includes:<br />

• Army Corps of Engineers grant—<br />

$925,000;<br />

• Ohio Public Works Commission grant—<br />

$400,000;<br />

• Residential Public Infrastructure grant<br />

through the Community Development Block<br />

Grant program—$750,000;<br />

• Ohio Water Development Authority<br />

grant—$500,000;<br />

• American Rescue Plan Act grant—<br />

Columbariums installed at Forest Grove Cemetery<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

To meet demand, the Darby Township trustees recently installed<br />

three columbariums at Forest Grove Cemetery.<br />

A columbarium is an above-ground structure that serves as the<br />

final resting place for ashes after cremation. The structure is made<br />

up of individual compartments known as niches. Each niche holds<br />

a funerary urn.<br />

The columbariums at Forest Grove Cemetery were installed on<br />

a concrete pad near the cemetery office on May 19. Each contains<br />

48 niches.<br />

“More and more people are going that direction, doing cremations.<br />

We’ve had people ask us about columbariums,” said Trustee<br />

Klaas Friesen.<br />

The cemetery buries funerary urns in regular grave plots. The<br />

columbariums give individuals who choose cremation another option,<br />

Ashley Winebrenner, Agent<br />

The trustees spent $10,000 to pour the<br />

concrete pad and a little over $30,000 to<br />

purchase and install the columbariums.<br />

They covered the entire cost with federal<br />

money they received to make improvements<br />

at the cemetery.<br />

Another project in the works is construction<br />

of an open-sided shelter near the columbarium<br />

site to be used for services and for<br />

shelter during bad weather.<br />

The trustees plan to set the cost to purchase<br />

a niche at their meeting on <strong>June</strong> 5.<br />

The trustees are Friesen, Myron Mast, and<br />

Roger Weeks.<br />

Anyone interested in more information<br />

can contact the cemetery office at (614) 873-<br />

Hall of Fame nominations due<br />

The London City Schools athletic department<br />

has refined the district’s athletic Hall<br />

of Fame nominating process.<br />

The new process relies on nominations<br />

from different sources. Nominations will be<br />

accepted from individuals of the community,<br />

as well as, from members of the new Hall of<br />

Fame committee. The committee will vote to<br />

determine if a nominee will be inducted into<br />

the hall of fame.<br />

This year, nominations are due by <strong>June</strong><br />

15. In future years, the deadline will be<br />

among many other acknowledgements for his commitment to military<br />

service.<br />

Bonnell talked about the criticism and negative labels he and his<br />

fellow Vietnam War era veterans endured during and after the war.<br />

“This labeling caused others to look at Vietnam veterans as being<br />

‘flawed’ and as ‘damaged goods,’” he said.<br />

“Our reputation and treatment has gotten a lot better over the<br />

years, however, I often felt the need to introduce myself as if I was<br />

in an AA meeting: ‘My name is Ken Bonnell, and I am a Vietnam<br />

veteran.’ Well, listen up, everybody. I am dang proud to be a Vietnam<br />

vet, and so should you!”<br />

Bonnell talked about the distinct memories he and his fellow veterans<br />

have based on their military specialties and when and where<br />

they served.<br />

“Regardless of when you served or where<br />

you served... your service was necessary for<br />

the defense of our great nation, for what our<br />

nation stands for, and for the defense of<br />

people in other nations striving to attain<br />

similar freedoms,” he told the crowd.<br />

He also turned the spotlight on the family<br />

members in the audience.<br />

“Let me stress that the spouses and immediate<br />

family members of Vietnam era<br />

veterans also served and sacrificed in their<br />

own right on behalf of our nation,” he said.<br />

A pinning ceremony followed Bonnell’s<br />

message. Lt. Gen. Charles Stenner read the<br />

names of veterans present. As each name<br />

was called, a loved one or a DAR member<br />

pinned a special Vietnam Veteran pin on<br />

the veteran’s lapel. Pins also were given to<br />

<strong>June</strong> 1. Nominations must be sent to Jim Wolverton, athletics and<br />

activities director, at 336 Elm St., London, OH 43140, or via email<br />

to jim.wolverton@london.k12.oh.us.<br />

The Hall of Fame procedures and ballot can be found at<br />

www.london.k12.oh.us/page/athletics.<br />

This nominating process was revamped to ensure all deserving<br />

graduates of London High School who left their mark athletically<br />

in high school and beyond are recognized.<br />

Honorees will be recognized during pre-game festivities of a fall<br />

football game and invited to take part in a recognition dinner the<br />

following evening.<br />

a handful of surviving spouses.<br />

A proclamation from Plain City Mayor<br />

Jody Carney was read. To bring the commemoration<br />

to a close, Kevin Mabry sang<br />

“God Bless America” and Douglas Weakley<br />

played “Taps.”<br />

Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin<br />

Any veteran who served on active duty in<br />

the U.S. Armed Forces anytime between<br />

Nov. 1, 1955, and May 15, 1975, regardless<br />

of location of service, is eligible to receive a<br />

special Vietnam Veteran lapel pin.<br />

The symbolism of the images on the pin’s<br />

front are:<br />

• Eagle—Represents courage, honor, and<br />

dedicated service to the nation.<br />

• Blue circle—The blue matches the canton<br />

of the American flag and signifies vigilance,<br />

perseverance, and justice.<br />

• Laurel wreath—A time-honored symbol<br />

representing victory, integrity, and<br />

strength.<br />

• Stripes—Represent the American flag.<br />

• Stars—The six stars represent the allies<br />

who fought alongside one another: Australia,<br />

New Zealand, the Philippines, the<br />

Republic of Korea, Thailand, and the United<br />

States.<br />

The message on the back of the pin<br />

reads: “A Grateful Nation Thanks and Honors<br />

You.” The official name of the commemoration<br />

is included, as well, reminding each<br />

veteran that this is a national initiative, and<br />

the pin is the nation’s memento of thanks.

Rockin’ on the Run racks up $25,000 for cause<br />

By Kristy Zurbrick<br />

<strong>Madison</strong> Editor<br />

Though the weather was dreary, spirits were bright at the 1<strong>4th</strong><br />

Annual Rockin’ on the Run, held May 20 at St. Patrick School in<br />

London. The event raises money for pediatric brain tumor awareness<br />

and research.<br />

A total of 270 people registered to participate in the 5K<br />

run/walk, one-mile run/walk, and children’s fun run. Of those, 170<br />

showed up on race morning. The rain cleared out just in time for<br />

the 8:30 a.m. start of the kids’ fun run after which the one-mile and<br />

5K events started.<br />

The top male finishers in the over-18 category were Michael<br />

Browning of Columbus with a time of 24:19 and J. Cole Sanford of<br />

London (26:17). The top female finishers in the over-18 category<br />

were Rachel Barends of Columbus (26:35) and Jess Earley of<br />

Springfield (29:01).<br />

The top male finisher under-18 was Vance Moerch of London<br />

(27:57). The top female finisher under-18 was Natasha Grube of<br />

Mount Sterling (29:19).<br />

“We had registrations from Ohio, Indiana, and Virginia this<br />

year,” said Ashley Winebrenner, Rockin’ on the Run board member.<br />

“We had registration ages from 1 year old to 96 years old. This goes<br />

to show we have something to do for every age at our event. We are<br />

truly family friendly!”<br />

In addition to the race and fun run, the <strong>2023</strong> Rockin’ on the Run<br />

included an auction, children’s activities, chances to throw whipped<br />

cream pies in the faces of local celebrities, and more.<br />

While this year’s effort fell $5,000 short of the committee’s<br />

$30,000 goal, Winebrenner said she and the other volunteers involved<br />

in the event are happy with the results.<br />

“This was our first year back in a while. It was nice to see that<br />

people still wanted to support our cause,” she said. “Coming off of<br />

COVID and with the way the economy is, we’re still impressed with<br />

the fundraising amount we hit.”<br />

Rockin’ on the Run took place virtually for two years during the<br />

pandemic. Last year, the group took a year off to rest and regroup.<br />

This year marked the event’s return to full, in-person operations.<br />

The <strong>2023</strong> proceeds will be split between Nationwide Children’s<br />

Hospital in Columbus and Books 4 Brains at Riley Hospital for Children<br />

in Indiana.<br />

“We are looking at other ways to fundraise as we move forward,”<br />

Winebrenner said. “We’re thinking about adding more events<br />

through the year, so people have multiple opportunities to support<br />

us.”<br />

$450,000; and<br />

• Federal appropriations—$765,000.<br />

“We’ve been working on this for about three years,” Slane said.<br />

“Even though it wasn’t an EPA (Environmental Protection Agency)<br />

mandate, we took the initiative to get this started and seek funding.”<br />

County officials knew funding was available. They also expected<br />

a mandate to come down at some time. They decided to tackle the<br />

project now, rather than risk having fewer or no funding options<br />

once the mandate came, Slane said.<br />

“When working with the EPA on this, they were pretty happy<br />

we had taken the initiative to get this going,” Slane said.<br />

Construction will start late this summer. The timeline from<br />

there will depend on weather and the ease of securing materials<br />

and labor.<br />

The grinder pumps are already on order. According to Slane, installation<br />

of the pumps will be less intrusive to property owners<br />

than installing a gravity system which typically requires major excavation<br />

and road repairs.<br />

Residents will keep their private water wells.<br />

Once the sewer system is up and running, residents will pay a<br />

flat fee of $55.80 per month for sewer service. This is approximately<br />

the same amount Lake Choctaw customers pay for their service.<br />

Runners and walkers take off at the start<br />

of the <strong>2023</strong> Rockin’ on the Run one-mile<br />

and 5K events. The courses started and<br />

finished at St. Patrick School in London.<br />

This fall, Rockin’ on the Run will hold its<br />

annual chicken and noodles dinner on Sept.<br />

25, 4-7 p.m., at M&M Diner in London.<br />

To learn more about Rockin’ on the Run,<br />

including ways to donate and support the<br />

cause, visit rockinontherun.org or<br />

www.facebook.com/rockinontherun. The<br />

group is looking for more board members,<br />

especially individual who are tech-savvy.<br />

All Summerford residents must sign on<br />

for the new county sewer service with two<br />

exceptions: those who own agricultural<br />

property and have a septic system in good<br />

working order that has been inspected by<br />

public health officials; and those whose<br />

homes are located more than 250 feet away<br />

from their septic collection system.<br />

In addition to addressing health and<br />

safety concerns, the sewer project will support<br />

future economic growth in the area, including<br />

residential and commercial<br />

development, Slane said.<br />

With the Summerford project in the<br />

works, the county will turn its attention<br />

next to Lafayette.<br />

“They are in a similar situation with<br />

quite a few houses on small parcels and no<br />

sewer service,” Slane said. “The process will<br />

start the same way we went with Summerford.<br />

We will start looking for the dollars<br />

and make sure it’s financially feasible. It<br />

will take a couple of years at least.”<br />
