SPECIAL THANKS GO OUT TO:                     

• the Amity Hill Spirit for their generous contribution of hiring a professional Scottish Highland Piper, Dave McKenzie, to play the bagpipes at our 2011 banquet. The music added so much to our opening ceremony.

Ralph Dagenhart from Richard's Coffee House in Mooresville, NC. Ralph made arrangements for the "Presentation of Colors" at our opening ceremony. We had one flag with three branches of the Armed Services, each represented by one individual in uniform. The three gentlemen participating in this event were: Sgt. Ralph Dagenhart, US Army, 2 years, 1 in Vietnam; 1st Sgt Jim Kiger, US Air Force (retired); Sr. Master Chief David Phillips, US Navy (retired) service on submarine and surface ships; served the last three years in the White House.

Sarah Cheek made a donation to The Spirit which, in tum, donated this contribution to the VFW in honor of her uncle, John Lee Sipes, Jr. (US Navy), a veteran of World War II (1943-1945), in thanks to the veterans represented above.

Neva Coker for a new podium.

Sarah Cheek & Neva Coker for the beautiful chrysanthemums that donned each side of the podium; flowers that were generously placed in the President's car at the end of the meeting as a most welcome surprise!
