The Eldon Wal-Mart reached a milestone yesterday and it was time to celebrate. The Eldon Wal-Mart turned 40 years old. This milestone is big as it shows that Wal-Mart is a staple in the community and amid speculation that there may be a SUPER Wal-Mart coming to the area, could prove to be a viable option. The anniversary celebration was a community event. Students from Upper Elementary School led in the saying of the Pledge of Allegiance, the Eldon High School choir sang the National Anthem, and Mayor John Holland spoke on behalf of the city.
