Patriots Flag Concourse and Memorial dedicated

The Patriots Flag Concourse and Memorial, completed in April, was the idea and dream of Salisbury Rotary Club member Reid Leonard.
It was the club’s centennial project for Rotary International’s first 100 years of history.
Designed to honor all patriots who serve our country and those who have served our country in the past, and for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their life for our freedoms, the memorial came about through community fundraising efforts on the part of Salisbury Rotary members.
In a ceremony on May 1, the site was presented as a gift to the people of Salisbury and “dedicated in honor of all who have served our country in the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine in this and every generation and for all time from a grateful community.”
