American Legion Celebration

The annual American Legion Veteran’s Day celebration over at the Post 17 building is a highlight event for me. I am proud that our district partners with the American Legion on this event through the participation of the Camden High School Band and the JROTC units from Camden High and North Central High. This year, Tim Hopkins and Pam Gainey from the district staff assisted with the program and Mr. Hopkins, himself an Air Force veteran, helped get the speaker. The JROTC units and the band did an excellent job. The speaker, Colonel John Thomas from Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, gave a great talk about who veterans are. I am always deeply moved by the reading of names of the Kershaw County Honor Roll. We were blessed with a beautiful day and large group of spectators. A fitting tribute to veterans.
