Proclamation in Recognition of Patriots Day, May 5, 2017

Mayor Tommy presented a proclamation to Wayne Brown, SAR President, in recognition of Patriot's Day. Present with Mr. Brown were Jim Casal and Earl Cagle, all members of Sons of the American Revolution (SAR). Mr. Brown advised on the history of the Captain John Collins Chapter and spoke of the many men and women who contributed to our Nation's freedom. Mr. Wayne commented that it was befitting for the SAR to be honored on the same day as the National Day of Prayer event. City Manager Brian Bulthuis thanked the members for their roles and attendance at a recent ceremony at Allatoona High School where his son Brandon received the Sons of the American Revolution bronze medal. Mayor Allegood advised that the John Collins Chapter also recognized the city with a very special award for its loyalty and support of SAR.
