Patriots Flag Concourse nearly ready | Community Spirit
SALISBURY - The Rotary Club of Salisbury is hosting a dedication for the Patriots Memorial and Flag Concourse, Tuesday, May 1 at 11:00 a.m. at City Park (corner of N. Jackson and W. Miller Streets).
The event stands as a way to express American patriotism and emulate appreciation for those veterans and current military forces serving to protect and maintain American freedom. The public is invited to attend the dedication and is advised to bring chairs due to limited seating.
The Patriots Flag Concourse and Memorial, where the Salisbury Armory was once located, features six walls displaying the names of United States veterans. Each wall states, “The Patriots Flag Concourse and Memorial is dedicated in honor of all who have served our country in this, and every generation and for all time.” Alongside the walls, seven flags will be posted to represent the United States and its various military branches.
The dedication will begin with a color guard presentation, as well as a 21 gun salute in memory of fallen veterans. The dedication will also feature Mrs.Teresa Moore Mitchell singing the National Anthem and other patriotic melodies. Mr. John Holshouser, previously a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) during the Hoover Administration and current attorney with Kluttz, Reamer, Hayes, Randolph, Adkins & Carter, LLP, will be the featured speaker.
Parking with shuttle service will be available along Lake Drive. Handicapped accessible parking will also be located on W. Miller Street near the City Park Tennis Complex.
