For the second year in a row, we raised our ‘grand ole flag’ on 9/11 to honor our community’s first responders and the memory of those we have lost. From our national military to critical first responders to fire departments to the entire police force, we humbly thank you for all you do.
This year, we began the morning by coming together for a time of prayer on the East Terrace, followed by a community breakfast. Afterward, our flag went up – proudly overlooking Highway 158 – and we invited the community to join us for a picnic on the lawn. A special thanks to the Cooleemee Fire Department, Cafe Gelato, California Fresh Catering, KevMark Catering, One Shot Photography and all of the first responders who joined us in making this time of remembrance possible.
