Children remembered at Flag Day service in Princeton

Bluefield Daily Telegraph

PRINCETON — Although rain prompted a cancellation of the annual “Remembrance Walk” at the conclusion of the annual Children’s Memorial Flag Day ceremony in Princeton, an umbrella-clad crowd of people stood outside on the Mercer County Courthouse steps as Denise Copolo and Phyllis Hasty released doves in memory of all children who lost their lives as a result of abuse and neglect.

Princeton’s own, Tammie Toler, was among the people honored during the service for their dedication to protecting young children from abuse and neglect. Toler, the editor of the Princeton Times, remains hospitalized at Roanoke Memorial Hospital where she is recovering from a stroke.
