Also, Thomson Tire Company, Pembroke Pharmacy, Canoochee EMC, D & L Auto Crushing Inc, Flanders Morrison Funeral Home and Anderson’s Lawn Equipment and Repair, Country Market, Mayor Mary Warnell, the honorable Judy Cook and Jimmy Cook.

We would also like to thank the city of Pembroke, Boy/Cub Scouts of America and Bryan County High School faculty members and students in the following departments for their eagerness in contributing their time to the “behind the scenes” work that goes into putting on our program: Bryan County High School Army JROTC, BCHS band, BCHS FFA, BCHS media department and art class, Boy Scout Pack 357 and Cub Scout Pack 141.

The collaboration of these residents and businesses has created a sense of community ownership and pride over this project. We, the Legion Auxiliary Unit 164, are extremely grateful to have our roots in this community.

Thank you to all.
