Kilian said McFarland is a local artist whose work can be viewed at www.mcfarlandstudio.com.

Kilian said the post plans to display the painting at its banquets and events. He added the print was displayed during the VFW’s Buddy Poppy distribution during the Memorial Day weekend, as well as at the post’s Memorial Day service May 27 at Bicentennial Park. The service featured Fairlawn Mayor William Roth as the keynote speaker, as well as the city’s police and fire departments. The national anthem was sung by Mario Buchanan, a music major at The University of Akron, and Taps was performed by bugler Randolph Baxter, senior vice commander of the post.
