- __Hubbard High School Football Team Honors Veterans September 20, 2017
The Hubbard High School Football Players have decided this year to once again honor both our American Flag and Veterans during their football season. At their opening game on Friday, August 25th, The Eagles were joined by six veterans from Hubbard VFW Post 3767. Before the team took the field, Senior Tyreq Moorer started waving the Hubbard Flag to get the crowd excited. He was then joined by Senior Hunter Meyer, who began waving the VFW ceremonial American Flag. As the team was announced, Hunter ran the flag across the field to the awaiting VFW Honor Guard. Veteran Al Chiaberta received the American Flag, flanked by Patrick Witt carrying the POW/MIA Flag, Mark Di Batisti carrying the VFW Post Flag, and two riflemen, Tony Kavalesky and Pat Gilliland. Joe Warminski, Honor Guard Commander, gave the commands for the presentation of colors to the audience for the playing of The National Anthem.
The Hubbard VFW Post 3767, would like to thank the Hubbard High School Football Team and Coaching Staff, Mr. Chuck Montgomery, HHS Director of Athletics and Mr. Rob Collier, HHS Football Parent Volunteer for including them in the team’s opening ritual. The members are honored and look forward to being at each of the home games and wish the HHS Football Team a successful season. Go Eagles!

- __UAW Stocks It to Kids September 20, 2017
UAW Local 1714 knows how important it is for all children to have the supplies they need to get a good education. So they are doing something about it.
“Our Executive Council wanted to support the Kids Kupboard program,” says Robert Morales, UAW Local 1714 President. “We feel it is important to give back to the community in any way we can.”
Kids Kupboard is an ongoing mission of the Charities Board of First Federated Church. “Every summer we collect supplies to donate to Jackson-Milton Schools so that every student has what they need,” explains Amy Sudimak, Charities Board President. “For the parents that are having financial difficulties it is a huge help.”
Jackson-Milton Elementary School Principal Kim Fisk says, “We are very fortunate to live and teach in a community that cares about their children like First Federated Church does. These supplies are distributed throughout the school year so they go a long way to giving each child the tangible tools they need to be successful in the classroom.”
The UAW Local 1714 Executive Board presented school supplies at First Federated Church on Thursday, August 24, 2017. The church is located at 10786 Mahoning Avenue, North Jackson, Ohio.
