Service groups provide valuable information for veterans
Carothers Funeral Home and Dignity Memorial saluted our nation’s military and veterans while hosting Chamber members and friends for Network After Work at their beautiful building in Gaston Memorial Park on Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018.
A short program at the start of the evening included a POW/MIA Remembrance ceremony and Pledge of Allegiance conducted by Jim Mayo and members of the Honor Guard. Speaking for Carothers were General Manager Andy May, Karen Allen and Scotty Teague. Montcross Area Chamber President Ted Hall also made comments.
Veteran service organizations were on hand to provide information and answer questions for veterans and other guests. Toys were collected for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program.
Chamber members made business connections while enjoying refreshments and visiting information stations to have cards punched to qualify for a grand prize. Sandra Cromlish of Belmont walked away with that prize, which was tickets to a Panthers game. Many others took home door prizes from the event.
