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 third-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.
Downtown Salisbury will again participate in this event with their “Prelude to the Pops,” featuring various events before the performance, with downtown businesses and restaurants extending their usual hours.
We’d also like to pay special tribute to our local military personnel. The Army National Guard will supply a Blackhawk flyover, as well as a stationary helicopter for the public to tour throughout the day. 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 might not have been possible.
Other significant gifts have included:
nRobertson Family Foundation and Food Lion as platinum sponsors;
nDuke Energy and Rowan Regional Medical Center, gold sponsors;
nEd and Susan Norvell, Power Curbers, Trinity Oaks, Salisbury Motor Co., Bank of North Carolina, First National Bank, First Bank and Fred and Alice Stanback, silver sponsors;
nBill and Nancy Stanback, Citizens South, community Bank, KKA Architecture, Ramsay Burgin Architecture, Silver Eagle LLC, Taylor Clay, SunTrust Bank, patron sponsors.
In-kind donations have come from Wachovia Bank, First Bank, Cheerwine, WSTP, WSAT, Miller Davis Studios, the City of Salisbury and Downtown Salisbury, Inc.
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! I hope to see you there.
Sincerely,
Mayor Susan Kluttz
