EUMS receives flags from the state capitol

EUMS Band Director, Avery McFadden and Flag Patrol Leader, William Harris performed “Reveille” and “To the Colors” on trumpets Thursday morning, November 16 for NC Representative Mark Brody.  Mr. Brody provided a US & NC flag that was flown over the capitol in Raleigh and presented them to Mr. Sanders and the flag patrol to fly for EUMS.

Mr. Brody helped our EUMS flag patrol raise the flag  and took time to talk to us about his service in the US Navy.  Mrs. Doris Buttrell contacted Mr. Brody’s office and spearheaded the process of the flag donations!

Our NC Governor, Roy Cooper signed two certificates showing the flags were flown over the capitol on November 8, 2017.  These certificates will be framed and hung on the wall near the office.  We thank Mrs. Buttrell for her correspondence with Mr. Brody in getting our new flags!
