July Fourth Celebration
Popular Event In Faith
Last Thursday, more than 30,000 people crowded into the
small town of Faith, population 500, near Salisbury, to par-
ticipate in another of their annual Fourth celebration for
which that community is well known.
The 1985 celebration was sponsored by the Faith American
Legion Auxiliary who take turns with the American Legion
and the Civitan Club in hosting the always-popular all-day
event which begins with a big parade at 10 a.m., the crowning
of Rowan County Veterans Queen, members of the Queens
court, and includes cash prizes for best floats, etc. in the
125-plus unit parade.
There is always good food and fellowship, topped off with a
fireworks extravaganza and the patriotic event draws people
from all over the state. Thursday’s parade was, the second
had participated in as a guest of the Auxiliary. The Faith unit
invited me when I was state President of the Auxliary in 1976.
Twenty years ago Faith was probably the only city or town
in the state that held an observance on the Fourth of July.
Now, many communities hold Fourth events, including our
own here in Kings Mountain, which was well attended at the
Community Center and at the Commissioners Park. The
fireworks display here also drew one of the largest crowds
The years following Vietnam have seen Americans grow
prouder of their freedoms, have seen them wanting to show
off their pride and love of country.
Perhaps more than ever this year more Americans flew the
flag and paused in their busy schedules to thank God for their
many freedoms they continue to enjoy every day in free
America. Freedom in America is still an unfinished business
but more than ever before on July 4, 1985 more of us realized
that it is up to each generation of citizens, from all sections of
this country, to cherish it and protect it.
