A chapter of Roanoke history with national significance is receiving fresh attention. On Monday, the city unveiled a new Virginia historical marker highlighting the Hunton Lifesaving and First Aid Crew.
“I think the one thing that is kind of getting me through this is that this will end eventually. This is not just something that is going to keep going on for like the rest of our lives,” Michael Buncher said.
Early voting in Virginia began a week ago, and Roanokers continue to take advantage of the opportunity. Already, between four and five percent of the registered voters in the city have cast their ballots.
