The Sweet Home Alumni Association has dedicated a Military Wall of Honor to the Sweet Home graduates who served in the Armed Forces.
The alumni association dedicated the military wall during a formal ceremony Friday evening at Sweet Home High School, 1901 Sweet Home Road, where the Wall of Honor is located inside the main lobby.
Some 90 veterans will be recognized on the wall by a star, which will include the veteran’s name, year of graduation and years of service. A special area of the wall will recognize those graduates who lost their lives in the line of duty.
“The wall is a perfect tribute to all of the Sweet Home graduates who have served our country,” said Lisa LaBrake, Sweet Home’s alumni coordinator. “It is my hope that as people in the community see the wall, they’ll want to honor a family member or someone they know that is a veteran and graduate of Sweet Home. It is a great way to say thank you.”

Elsewhere, it looks as if the Village of Williamsville will go ahead with plans to lease space in the Williamsville Water Mill to Sweet Jenny’s Ice Cream on a month-to-month basis starting this holiday season.
The village and popular ice cream and chocolate shop worked out a lease agreement, but were waiting for architects to confirm the south wall of the 1800s-era building is stable and safe.
That analysis was done last week and it was found that there are no structural risks with occupying the south wing of the mill, Mayor Brian J. Kulpa said.
Sweet Jenny’s, located a couple blocks from the mill at 5732 Main St., will do retail sales out of the mill starting the first week of December while maintaining its current location, said owner Howard Cadmus.
