“An American Main Street” patriotic event planned for San Augustine 9/11

You don’t want to miss this!  September 11, 2015 beginning at 5:00 PM, the City of San Augustine Main Street Program, San Augustine County, and San Augustine County Chamber of Commerce are hosting An American Main Street on the Square in historic downtown San Augustine.  
The primary purpose of this patriotic event is to recognize and support all First Responders, Law Enforcement, Veterans Organizations, EMTs, Game Wardens, etc. County-wide and to remember the victims of that tragic day, September 11, 2001.  
“We must never forget” seems even more relevant today, and showing our support for all those who work to protect our freedoms and our way of life and to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice (whether as innocents or in the line of duty) will be the foundation of this event with recognition/honor/remembrance ceremonies opening and closing (a moving candlelight salute to America with remembrance of those lost) the event. 
Between the ceremonial portions of the evening, we will celebrate “life on Main Street America” to “bring home” the spirit and patriotism that are the treasures we defend and to bring to life the symbolic statement that “no one can take this away from us!”.  Food, music, childrens’ games, will be provided, all free to the public.  
Melodies on Main Street will feature two local talented artists, presenting patriotic as well as other traditional music.  Wayne Holt will entertain for the first set, and Charles Delaney (the well-known golden voice of patriotism in these parts) for the second set.  The artwork of a Mixed Media Art Contest will be on display and the winners will be recognized.  A Call For Entries is available – see contact info below. 
So, come, enjoy good ole American hot dogs, sit back and listen to an inspiring outdoor concert and enjoy the fellowship of your friends and neighbors, all the while lending your support to those who work to keep us safe and honor America.  Each responder unit/department, veteran organization, etc. will be receiving an “honor piece” to display as they see fit.  Each piece will be  matted and will be available for all who attend and wish to do so to sign the mat and “pen your thanks and support” for their presence in our community.   So, mark your calendars now to spend a Friday evening in September in downtown San Augustine, where patriots will be gathered!
