Spencer to hear waiver, proclamation requests

SPENCER — Proclamations and fee waivers for worthy causes are on the agenda at 7 p.m. Tuesday for Spencer aldermen.
The board will consider a request from Chapter 634 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, a group based in Mecklenburg County, to issue a proclamation acknowledging the Purple Heart at the oldest military decoration still in present use. The group is requesting proclamations from elected officials in the Charlotte region.
Congress chartered the Military Order of the Purple Heart to foster an environment of goodwill among combat-wounded veteran members and their families, promote patriotism and ensure the country never forgets the sacrifices made by those who have been decorated with the medal.
In another request for a proclamation, Dorsett Chapel United Church of Christ members will ask aldermen to recognize the church’s 100th anniversary. The church was founded in 1913 on land donated by James Dorsett.
Groundbreaking for the current church site took place in 1990.
Two groups are seeking fee waivers. Spencer Partnership plans a Hometown Holidays event on Dec. 6 at Library Park, and North Rowan High School is asking for a special event permit and fee waiver for Cavaliers Run for a Cure, a 5K run and walk on Nov. 23.
Proceeds will benefit pancreatic cancer research and North Rowan High School secretary Kim Smith, who has been diagnosed with the disease.
Also on Tuesday’s agenda:

• Mayor Jody Everhart’s report
• Town Manager Larry Smith’s report
• Public Comment

The Board of Aldermen meet in Town Hall, and Smith will hold office hours at 6 p.m. today for any alderman who wishes to ask questions about the agenda. The office hours are open to the public.
Contact reporter Emily Ford at 704-797-4264.
