Palmer Town Historian David Patton presented lumps of souvenir Palmer coal to Chasten Britton of Altamont, and Matthew Hampton of Gruetli-Laager, during the May 1, Grundy County Democrat-ic Primary.
“These young people were poll workers at the Palmer precinct,” Patton said. “They will be the first in their families to get col-lege degrees if they stick with it. It’s not easy being a pioneer, so help and en-courage them in any way you can.”
