PARIS, TX-- Paris City Officials were recognized Tuesday night for their support of the local VFW.
City Manager John Godwin and County Judge Chuck Superville were just two of the award recipients.
Post Commander Bud Mackey says this was their opportunity to thank city officials for supporting veterans and the post.
Superville says it's an honor to receive the award.
"I'm so proud to do what I do," said Chuck Superville. "I'm so blessed to do what I do and the way that I say thank you is doing what I do and give back."
The Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW are also collecting toiletries to bring to the VA nursing home in Bonham.
"It's the difference of having something and not having something," said volunteer Cindy Farley. " They are not provided any of these things at the nursing home."
