2 Events to Mark 9/11 This Year – Davie County Will Never Forget!
A Day of Remembrance – WinMock at Kinderton
On Thursday, September 11, 2014, WinMock at Kinderton will host “A Day of Remembrance”.
All are invited as we gather to remember the events of September 11 and pray for our nation, our first responders, and all those whose lives were affected by the tragic events of that day. The morning begins at 8:00 with a community prayer breakfast.
Sterling Events and Winmock at Kinderton will celebrate our nation by displaying a giant 30’ by 50’ American Flag atop a Cooleemee aerial fire truck. This will give you a chance to personally thank some of the first responders who will be at WinMock during the day. Stop by for lunch available for purchase from local food trucks with outdoor picnic seating available.

Please join us in thanking the Sterling Events Group and WinMock at Kinderton for their generosity in giving back to our community in so many ways throughout the year and for their invitation to come together, on this day of solemn remembrance, to thank and honor those who continue to serve as first responders in our community, as well as to recall to memory those who have gone before.
