Honor Roll History

Over 50 years ago, Mr. Waldo Schmidt erected an Honor Roll, listing individuals who has served in the military. The structure was located where the Max Post Office now stands. Eventually the wooden Honor Roll began to deteriorate and was dismantled. In 1997, talk turned to action and a list of veterans was started. By the fall of 1998, over 900 names were in place on the north wall of the Max City Hall.
