PUNXSUTAWNEY — Friday at Gobbler’s Knob, U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson and state Rep. Sam Smith previewed new national and state flags to be presented at a dedication to local veterans Nov. 7.

“I certainly wanted to support the local organizations as they prepare to do an outreach program for our veterans,” Smith said. “Any time we can support those efforts and recognize people who have served our country, it’s a worthwhile cause.”
