EVERY FOURTH of July when Steve Fink hears the song “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood it still brings tears to his eyes. In that song, when Greenwood sings, “I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free,” it has true meaning to Steve and Jennifer Fink. This country has given them the opportunity to give back to their communities. On Friday, June 29, Steve and Jennifer, owners of See-Mor Grain and S.M.G. Insurance, donated $25,000 toward the Darlington Area Veterans Memorial. Dan O’Brien and Dave Gough, both of the memorial committee, accepted the checks. This donation is made in memory of Steve’s uncle, Bernard Fink, who served during the Korean War. Without their loyal customers, friends and employees, this would not happen. Everyone at See-Mor Grain and S.M.G. Insurance and their customers would like to show their appreciation to all who have served and are now serving this great country in the armed forces. Their hearts go out to all of the families that have lost loved ones keeping this country free. Have a happy and safe Fourth of July and mark your calendar to attend the memorial dedication, tentatively set for Nov. 11, 2012.
