Published quarterly, AMARILLO SENIOR LINK magazine tells the stories of local seniors and veterans in the area. Copies of the magazine are free to the public and available in numerous locations in Claude, Amarillo, and the surrounding area.
The front cover photo of the magazine features two Claude veterans among fourteen who gathered for an appreciation breakfast prior to the release of the publication. Individual stories showcase the service of two residents, Jerry Morris, “Transparent as Glass,” and Don Sherman, “From New York to Amarillo by Way of Vietnam.”
A third story, “A Jewel of History,” is the magazine’s description of ACM’s Military Hall of Honor. The Hall provides photos, names, and artifiacts going back to WWI. Families and friends visit The Hall to show respect and remember the “boys and girls” who left home and Armstrong County to serve the country. The fourth story details the quilt group which makes and presents patriotic quilts to veterans. “It Was a Little Thing” tracks the work of many that have resulted in quilts for veterans.
