Gerald Jones, Commander of the Anson VFW, presented the owners of Donelle’s Diner with the Patriotic Citizenship Award on Friday, October 31, 2015. Michael and Donelle Tipton opened Donelle’s Diner nearly two years ago. Michael and Donelle both agree that their business continues to grow slowly each day. The diner proudly displays their American flag every day. They also have an Honor Wall inside their diner. This wall is covered with active, retired, and deceased members of our military that have some connection to Anson. It is also covered with Michael’s family who have served. From the Revolutionary War to Desert Storm, Michael has had a family member that has served in every war. If you would like to have a picture of your family member on this wall, e-mail a picture along with the name and branch of service to firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll be glad to get your picture on the Honor Wall. Oh and one note, Donelle wanted to let everyone know that the attire in their picture is their Halloween costume, not their everyday clothing.
