News

AFTON, Ok. — The community came out to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Afton American Legion Post 124 Saturday with a parade and flyover.

Local craft and food vendors were also in attendance.

Veterans and their family members also had the opportunity to sign up for visits to the nation’s capital hosted by Northeast Oklahoma Veterans Freedom Tours.

“We just need to realize we owe veterans more than we can ever pay them back,” said Kenny Kelsey with Northeast Oklahoma Veterans Freedom Tours. “We need to get back to that America that we were 20 years ago that’s all about America, the flag, the veteran.”

The parade ran from the Afton School District to the town hall.
