Kannapolis plans Shue events

The city of Kannapolis will commemorate the homecoming of Sergeant First Class Donald M. “Donnie” Shue on Saturday with a 20-minute ceremony in Veterans Park, scheduled to begin at noon.
SFC Shue had been officially classified as Missing In Action on Jan. 15, 1979, when he and his two comrades did not return from highly confidential operations just inside Laos.
The ceremony will include Presentation of the Colors, musical arrangements performed by the A.L. Brown High School Band and remarks by elected officials.
A Kannapolis resident and former A.L. Brown High School student, Donnie Shue will be honored with a proclamation by the mayor and be awarded his high school diploma by Kannapolis City Schools Superintendent Dr. Pamela Cain. He will also be honored with a flag presentation by former Special Forces members.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, the procession will continue to Whitley’s Funeral Home, 1748 Dale Earnhardt Blvd. in Kannapolis, where Shue’s body will lie in the chapel for public visitation from 4 to 6 pm.
Road closures along the procession route will begin at 11 a.m. Ample parking for those attending the ceremony will be available in downtown Kannapolis and be designated by event parking signs.
