Current in Westfield Managing Editor Robert Herrington, left, accepts a certificate of commendation on behalf of Current Publishing LLC. from Michaela Eells of Children of the American Revolution and Joshua Eells of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. The award was presented to Current Publishing in recognition of exemplary patriotism in the display of the American flag – fittingly on Flag Day (June 14).

The 13-year-old Joshua, chairman of the Clarence A. Cook Chapter’s flag committee, said he looked for businesses and individuals who “fly the flag right” by using proper flag etiquette. He also presented certificates to the Westfield Washington Public Library and Bob’s Garage in Westfield. Joshua, who recently completed seventh grade, recognized Westfield Intermediate and Westfield Middle school prior to the end of the school year.

“As a descendant of a patriot, it’s our way of saying thank you,” he said.
