December 7--  Lyons city hall was full of people late Saturday afternoon as the city dedicated the building to the late Mayor John Moore who died in June.

Mayor Willis NeSmith said, "One of the last things he did was to be responsible for building this new building we're standing in now.  We decided we wanrted to dedicate this building to John Moore for all he did for this city over the years.  We're just sorry he couldn't be here with us to see it dedicated to him."

His family and widow, Marsha, were present for the unveiling of a plaque in the lobby of city hall.

"It means a great deal to us because John put so much of himself in it.  This is a way he'll be remembered and his efforts won't be forgotten.  He loved the people, he was honored to be their Mayor and honored more to be their friend," Mrs. Moore said.
