SHICKSHINNY: American Legion Post 495 is holding a rededication ceremony honoring the post's namesake, Jessie Thomas, at 1 p.m. on Sept. 8 at the post home, Route 239, between Shickshinny and Huntington Mills.

Private First Class Jessie Thomas was killed in action in France during World War I shortly after Battery B of the 109th Field Artillery Regiment's entrance into the war in September 1918.

Several guest speakers are scheduled at the event, including Representative Lou Barletta and State Representative Karen Boback. Light refreshments will be provided after the ceremony.
