The Bank of Zachary is sponsoring the annual Veterans Day flag-raising ceremony at the Regional Veterans Park on the campus of Lane Regional Medical Center, 6300 Main Street in Zachary, on Monday, November 11th at 7:30 a.m. – rain or shine.
This will be the eleventh year of the annual Flag Raising which began in front of the Bank of Zachary’s main office on Main Street but moved to the Regional Veterans Park behind Lane Regional Medical Center upon its completion in 2016. Bank President/CEO Mark Marionneaux stated, “Every year we look forward to sponsoring this wonderful community event to honor the service and sacrifice of our local veterans.”
Mr. Pres Kennedy, President Emeritus of Bank of Zachary, will serve as Master of Ceremonies and Chad Felps, Marine and Purple Heart recipient who fought in Afghanistan and Iraq, will offer remarks during the program. Cadets from the Army Junior ROTC at Zachary High, under the direction of Major Leslie Martin, will provide the flag detail. Mac Cunningham, bugler, will play the Call to Colors and Taps. Patriotic music will be provided by the school’s band and choir under band director Jason Venable and choir director Christina Lewis. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony.
