As summer gets underway, many organizations, businesses, schools and community efforts are giving and receiving big salutes to the season with financial support, student honors, and military tributes.
Sonshine Soup Kitchen in Derry recently received a financial boost to support its downtown food mission.
Londonderry High School Class of 2021 graduates were honored again this year with banners showing all graduates' portraits hung along Mammoth Road prior to graduation day, thanks to support by the Londonderry Rotary Club.
And those serving in the military were paid tribute for their service and commitment.
Also, a recent Relay for Life event held at Pinkerton Academy once again supported those battling cancer, survivors and their families.
