A memorial service honoring the life of Hugh McMillan of Home was held June 18 at the Peninsula High School gymnasium. Family, friends, and dignitaries including U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer eulogized the well-known community booster and beloved newspaper columnist and photographer who sought to highlight elementary school students throughout the Peninsula School District. Kilmer arranged for a U.S. flag flown over the Capitol in Washington D.C. in McMillan’s honor to be presented to son Lance McMillan in appreciation for his father’s service to country and community.
