BIG RUN — Acknowledging what has been a nationally recognized holiday since 1958, the VFW Post 9044, VFW District 19 of Pennsylvania and Ladies Auxiliary presented a Loyalty Day program Sunday in the Big Run War Memorial.

"Many of our holidays celebrate the birthdays of famous people or other historical events in the development of our country, but the one we celebrate today is different from all the rest," VFW Post 9044 Senior Vice- Commander Jim Soliday said. "Today is a holiday that celebrates an idea — the idea was democracy."
