Spirit of Central to be presented by Live@Central June 26

The 10th annual Spirit of Central will be held at Central United Methodist Church on June 26. Dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m., and the Patriotic Celebration following at 6:15 p.m. Reservations are required for dinner and the event is open to the public. An All American dinner of hamburgers/hot dogs, potato salad, corn on the cob, green beans, watermelon, apple pie and ice cream will be available. Cost is $5 per adult and $2 per child Please call 843-662-3218 to make reservations for dinner which is necessary. No reservations are necessary if you are coming for program only. The Spirit of Central is Central’s informal patriotic celebration of our nation. The Patriotic Tribute Festivities will be coordinated by Wayne Jackson with a kick-off honoring those who served us over these past 239 years. Included will be Nick Townsend singing the National Anthem, The Pledge of Allegiance lead by Rivers Crouse, and the traditional children’s Stars and Stripes flag parade lead by Teresa Brunson. After the flag parade, the children will go to the playground for games and treats from the ice cream truck. The keynote speaker will be the Honorable James E. Lockemy, serving on the South Carolina Court of Appeals.  He will deliver an inspiring patriotic message. Members of the Florence Veterans Honor Guard will demonstrate an American Flag folding ceremony. Great entertainment is in store after the Patriotic Tribute.  The Plaids, presented by Live@Central, a fabulous group from Lake City, will perform hits from the ‘50s and ‘60s. The Plaids have been entertaining audiences across eastern South Carolina for more than 15 years with favorite hits and doo-wop that will bring back fond memories of yesteryear. If you have not heard them before, you are in for a real treat. The community is invited to this free annual patriotic celebration of our nation’s history. Central United Methodist is located at the corner of South Irby Street and West Cheves Street in downtown Florence. A nursery will be provided. Remember reservations for dinner are necessary before Tuesday, June 25. For more information call Linda Segars at 843-662-3218 or
