Pops at the Post: Mayor welcomes you to Pops

Dear Community Members,
Once again this year, I’d like to thank everyone involved for the wonderful gift that’s been given to Salisbury and Rowan County ó the fifth annual Pops at the Post.
“A once-in-a-lifetime event” was the way concert-goers described the Salisbury Post’s centennial concert in 2005. But thanks to local businesses, individuals and a foundation, the Pops at the Post is well on its way to becoming an annual tradition.
We’d also like to pay special tribute to our local military personnel. I am pleased that the concert continues to honor our hometown heroes. The Army National Guard will supply a Blackhawk flyover, as well as a stationary helicopter for the public to tour throughout the day. New this year is a climbing wall. You’ll also have the opportunity to see an Army firetruck and a firetruck from the City of Salisbury.
Of course, this magical event would not be possible without the help of our sponsors. We are most grateful to our major sponsors, Jim and Gerry Hurley and F&M Bank. Without their generous lead gifts, this event would not have been possible. This year, we’d like to wish F&M Bank continued success on the occasion of its 100th anniversary. Congratulations, F&M!
Other significant gifts have included:
n Robertson Family Foundation, Food Lion and Fred & Alice Stanback as platinum sponsors;
n Duke Energy and Rowan Regional Medical Center as gold sponsors;
n Bank of North Carolina, First Bank, Community One, Wachovia, Trinity Oaks, Global Contract Services, Summit Developers and Tom & Martha Smith as silver sponsors;
n Bill and Nancy Stanback, Community Bank of Rowan, KKA Architecture, Taylor Clay, Salisbury Academy, SunTrust and Ramsay, Burgin, Smith Architects as patron sponsors.
In-kind donations have come from Wachovia, First Bank, Cheerwine, Miller Davis Studios, City of Salisbury, Downtown Salisbury, Inc. and Kent Bernhardt.
A special thank you to the Salisbury Post, which has been responsible for planning, implementing and, most importantly, providing the perfect location.
Please don’t miss this exciting evening!
