Former SA Board Members Honored

Several long-time community leaders are being honored for their dedication and commitment.

Four trees were planted in Lufkin Monday in honor of former Salvation Army board members Jane Cornelius, George Henderson, Jr., H.J. "Bubba" Shands, and Charlotte Temple.

Family members of the honorees planted those trees in front of the Salvation Army Day Center in Lufkin.

Jane Cornelius died in 2003.  She was one of the first Salvation Army board memebers in Lufkin.  Her son, Ragin Cornelius, said, "It was a very distinguished honor to be remembered and honored; it's fantastic.

Monday was also the start of Salvation Army Week.
