USA CELEBRATION "SOUNDS OF LIBERTY" - JULY 4TH - CARROLLTON CITY SCHOOLS CAMPUS - 8:15 P.M.

This picture was made at the Carrollton Jazz Orchestra concert June 30th, 2018

This is your opportunity to show your PRIDE and HONOR your Branch 
of Service.  Terry Lowry is doing a great Community Service by planning 
this Outstanding Patriotic evening with Great Uplifting Music.

Show your appreciation by wearing your uniform, taking advantage of the
convenient parking and seating arrangement - and show your patriotism!

It is the least you can do.  God Bless the USA, Violette

Violette, Do me (and Terry) a favor and put out a "begging" for
Veterans to attend the Sounds of Liberty on the evening of the
 July 4th.

Once again Terry Lowry has asked me to try to find Veterans
with Uniforms to be present for the opening of the
Sounds of Liberty on the evening of the 4th.  There is reserved
 PARKING for Veterans
near the stage at the entrance of the Carrollton Middle School ----
CHAIRS are provided at stage side ---- We badly need
TWO veterans from each BRANCH of service to go onto the
stage and  salute when the branch of service is sung in the song
that honors all of us --- It is the highlight of the evening and
very meaningful.

Anyone willing please give call to Don Levans 678-246-8446

CARROLL COUNTY VETERANS MEMORIAL PARK FOUNTAIN BEING REPAIRED

I visited the Carroll County Veterans Memorial Park today and Ron Reinhold was cleaning and repairing the fountain. Thank you Ron, it looks better already




Actually, I (Violette Denney) was there to make pictures of the recently added memorial 
bricks so I could update the brick index as requested by Charles Griffin.  It was sunny 
(cause for sun grin)  for a while then it started raining.
