Help needed in Kennesaw
Almost a year ago, the City of Kennesaw chose to remove the flags and flag poles that flew next to monument for The General, Captain Fuller, and Philips Legion. These flags were put up almost 50 years ago when The General was returned to Big Shanty/Kennesaw.
Since the removal, Camp McDonald and Division and Brigade leadership has discussed the issue with the Mayor and City Council and has even offered to pay for replacement poles and flags. After repeated communication with the city, we need as many folks as possible to attend the City Council meeting on Monday, February 15 at 6:30PM at the Kennesaw City Hall.
The address is:
2529 J.O. Stephenson Ave
Kennesaw, GA 30144
Up until now our communication with the City has been civil and in a spirit of cooperation, however our patience is wearing thin. We need to show that the community and region cares about this issue. We will have a few members address the Mayor and Council at the meeting. It would be great to see fellow compatriots standing behind us in a supportive, civil manner.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at scv1552@yahoo. com
See you there!
