A large crowd gathered at Potter Community Park on Memorial Day to dedicate the town’s new Military Salute Memorial. The memorial features seven flag poles, each flying a separate flag to honor the county’s veterans. In addition to the American and South Carolina state flags, the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard flags were raised along with a POW/MIA flag.
