LOGAN, W.Va. — Mayor Serafino Nolletti and clerk Amber Viars hosted the Beth Haven Christian School student council for the signing of a proclamation for Christian Heritage Week November 18.
The 25th annual Christian Heritage Week will be observed during the week of Thanksgiving in Logan November 20 — 26.
The proclamation states, “Whereas commemorating American Christian heritage provides an opportunity to those choosing to participate to thank God for his blessings of liberty to ask his help to ensure domestic tranquility and to recognize our national need and unalienable rights in reaffirming our reliance on the protection of divine providence for keeping our families secure, communities safe and America free and independent, one nation under God.”
The proclamation was signed by Nolletti and Beth Haven Christian School student body president, Rachael Spangler.
Student council members Katelyn Wells, Megan Hager, Elisha Maynard, Reese Belcher, Hunter Viars, Madison Hall, Kynlee Evans, Issac Gollighue and Melia Freeman were also invited to behind the council desk for the signing.
Nolletti and Viars also gave the students lessons in civics and history letting them examine 70 year old minute books from the council’s library and explain some of the process of local government.
Nolletti described the work in securing funding for the walk bridge that stretches between Midelburg Island and Slab Town.
“There was four years of work encompassing that little bridge,” added Viars.
