Saturday, May 17 is Armed Forces Day. Please honor our military personnel by attending the Stars and Striped themed festival in Pomaria.
The festival will be a fun day for the whole family with a Stars and Stripes Parade beginning at 11 a.m. We will have live music, crafts, games for the children, antique tractors and cars on display and have a lot of good food.
Proceeds from the Festival will help to renovate the old Pomaria school building. With the renovations, the school can be used as a community gathering place for meetings and special events. The school building has been a part of Pomaria for many years and will benefit the community for many more years.
My name is Hayne L. Koon and I graduated from the Pomaria School 1936. After a career in the U.S. Army, I settled in North Carolina but I have strong ties to Pomaria through family and friends. I invite you to join me on Saturday as we honor the military who keeps us free. You will also help bring new life to the Pomaria School building.
I look forward to seeing you at the festival.
