Local Boating And Golf Community Hosts Veterans Day Program In Honor Of Those Who Served
NEW BERN, N.C. – Fairfield Harbour (http://hoatown.com/fhpoa2), a residential boating and golf community located 15 minutes from historic New Bern, has announced the community’s plans to host a program of recognition and remembrance in honor of Veterans Day, which will be held on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. The program, which is open to the public, will begin with the permanent installation of emblematic flags representing each branch of the U.S. military at the Fairfield Harbour main entrance, the Shoreline entrance gates. Following the flag ceremony, the community will host a light reception in the fire-hall, which will feature Maj. Gen. Tom Braaten, USMC, (Retired), as the event’s guest speaker. Due to limited space and seating, reservations are required and can be made by calling (252) 633-5500.
“We come in contact daily with numerous U.S. military service personnel both active and retired, but we rarely stop to think about the sacrifice they have made to maintain our country’s freedom,” said Larry Knapp, president of the Fairfield Harbour board of directors. “Our program of remembrance and recognition on Nov. 11 provides us with the opportunity to take that moment to reflect on sacrifices made and show our appreciation and gratitude to the men and women who selflessly serve our country. I look forward to joining the residents and board members of Fairfield Harbour as we raise the flags and celebrate our heroes.”
