Heroes’ Tree honors service members

FERDINAND — The Ferdinand Branch Library announces that a Heroes’ Tree has been placed in the library.

The public is invited to visit the Ferdinand Library and pick up a free ornament to add to the tree. The ornaments should be decorated with names and/or pictures of U.S. service members from the past and present and returned to the tree.

The library’s is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
