Judge Lockemy will speak about the Great War (World War I) especially as it relates to the Pee Dee area.
Entertainment will include patriotic songs from this era performed by McCutcheon Road (Happy Pendergraft and Faith Godwin), as well as the national anthem and God Bless America performed by vocalist Rebecca Thompson.
There will be tables provided for children and adults to write letters to our servicemen stationed around the world. Children’s activities include a flag parade, playground activities, and a visit from the Kona Ice truck.
