L.C. Marines present Certificate of  Appreciation to Flannigan, Moscow Mills

Moscow Mills, Mo. - Moscow Mills Mayor Patrick Flannigan, second from right, accepts a Certificate of Appreciation from Chuck Calvert of the Lincoln County Marines for allowing the organization to conduct fundraisers in the city at Moscow Mills City Hall on July 9.

Flannigan called the honor a “tribute to the citizens who donated” to all of the fundraisers the Lincoln County Marines held, including “Toys for Tots,” which Calvert said the group did better in Moscow Mills than in any other area in the county, raising nearly $3,000 in a little more than three hours.

“It blew us away,” he said. “We did better here than what we raised in six or seven hours in other places.”
