On Sept. 20, over 100 people witnessed the dedication of the Page Co. Freedom Rock. The weather was perfect for the visitors, with many veterans in attendance. Even though the Freedom Rock is located at the Nodaway Valley Museum, it is a memorial to all Page CO. veterans. Hopefully, more news will be coming in the next couple of weeks.
