Our White Table Display honors veterans, active service members, POWs and MIA. Similar displays began with the Vietnam War.
The white cloth honors the soldiers pure heart when they answer the call to duty.
An empty chair represents the missing soldier.
The black napkin the sorrow of captivity.
A turned over glass represents a meal that won’t be eaten.
A white candle symbolizes peace.
A red rose in a glass vase with a red ribbon symbolizes the hope that all service people return home safely.
With all our respect,
The Holdrege Area Public Library
