In honor of Floyd and Barbara Sigler's 60th wedding anniversary, the couple's son and daughter-in-law, Ken and Tammy Sigler, dedicated a glider bench and flower planter at Dr. Ann Showers Animal House Vet Clinic on East Main Street.

"We wanted to do something in honor of their anniversary and to help out the clinic," said Tammy Sigler. "So we decided to give the vet somewhere for clients to enjoy while their furry ones get care. We named the garden area after Floyd and Barbara's dog Shadow who passed away last year."
