Lane Funeral Home on Ashland Terrace received a National Award on Friday from the National Society of The Sons Of the American Revolution.

The award was presented through the local John Sevier SAR chapter of the Tennessee society.  The award was the Flag Award given to businesses or to individuals who follow flag protocols for honoring the American Flag.  One of the primary considerations is that the flag is properly displayed for patriotism and honor. The award, established in 1987, recognizes those who have been nominated by local SAR chapters.  

Tim Adams, president of the John Sevier Chapter, presented the award to Mike Kellar, managing partner of Lane Funeral Home.  

Participating in the award ceremony were Ed English, president of Lane; Frank Hilley, director, Charles Dammann, and Jim Moore, both past state SAR presidents of the Tennessee Society and the local John Sevier Chapter.
