Homewood’s Wally Burns Post 8077 selected 10 students as local winners as part of the national Veterans of Foreign Wars Patriot’s Pen essay contest.

 
Winners were Blair Bowden of Glenwood Academy; Cassandra Cross, Christina Cortes and Katelyn Nottke of Infant Jesus of Prague School; Luke Wieland of James Hart School; Luke Griggs, Samuel Hall and Josiah Griggs of Parker Junior High; and Tyler Lloyd and Taylor Roquemore of St. Joseph School.
 
Students were asked to write on the theme “The America I Believe In.” They focused on America’s immigrants, a strong military, freedom of religion and dedicated first responders.
 
Honorees each received a monetary award.

About Us

A great community deserves a great newspaper. The HF Chronicle was created in June 2014 as the Homewood Chronicle (but we soon realized Homewood and Flossmoor are so interconnected that it makes better sense to cover both villages). Our mission is to chronicle the life of our community — news by, for, and about the people of Homewood and Flossmoor, Illinois.
