On Friday, January 26, the Walton High School Chorus had the honor of performing before the parade to honor WWII Prisoner of War Ewart Sconiers’s return to Defuniak Springs. His remains had been missing for 73 years, and he was finally returned to DeFuniak Springs where he was laid to rest at Southwide Baptist Church. The community rallied with flags and patriotism, and Walton Singers alternated performing with the Bee Bops from West DeFuniak Elementary. It was an honor to be a part of this event and to get to pay respects for someone who gave his life for our country. Submitted by Christy English.
