Courtney Blalock of Ferdinand, 12, left, her sister, Taylor, 14, her mother, Michelle, and Barbara Jahn of Dubois applauded after the closing remarks of the National Day of Prayer service held on the Dubois County Courthouse lawn in Jasper on Thursday. This was the 62nd year for the national event and the 21st year it has been observed in Dubois County. An estimated 100 to 125 people attended, and local clergy led prayers in seven categories: government, military leaders, courts and judges, pastors, clergy and church, schools and teachers, and family and youth.
