Taps Across America
The sound of Taps echoed down Belmont’s Main Street on Memorial Day afternoon as Capt. Matthew Hanks of the North Carolina Army National Guard played by the city clock in honor of all serving in the United States armed forces and especially those who have given their lives in service to their country. The ceremony was part of a national “Taps Across America” campaign, and the Montcross Area Chamber assisted in arranging the observance, which was recorded and shared on social media and seen live on the Chamber’s BelmontCAM, which is affiliated with EarthCAM. Matthew Hanks is the owner/broker at Hanks Realty Group on South New Hope Road in Gastonia.
