EFCO, a Pella Company, honors its veterans every year on Veterans Day with a reception, but this year the company added something new. Ninety-two flags are displayed next to the EFCO sign at the entrance of the main plant in Monett. There are 92 veterans employed at the Monett plant with two still on active duty and serving overseas. EFCO honors veterans at all of its plants annually, but the new design of flags was created by EFCO employee Allen Chandler, whose son is employed at Arlington Cemetery and is part of the group that distributes flags at the cemetery. Following the ceremony and reception, the flags will be presented to each veteran at EFCO. [Times Photo by Jared Lankford]
