Giving Back to Those Who Have Served - Carolina Country
November 2018

Veterans Day is a time to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our Country and those who continue to protect our homeland. On Sunday, November 11, ceremonies will take place around the nation as a way to remember and honor our military veterans. 

Luanne Sherron Mac Rushing and Gary WilfongAmerican Legion Post #535 located in Unionville is the first American Legion building built in Union County since the 1950s. The new 7,000-square-foot building will serve over 140 veterans and be used to host community events, Boy Scout troop meetings, and monthly veterans’ meetings. 

An event was held in August to celebrate the building of the new post and to honor local heroes, with members from all branches of the service in attendance, along with their spouses. Union Power representatives attended the event and presented the Post with a donation. 

With the majority of the building already paid for by the generosity of local businesses, Union Power is proud to be a part of this notable cause that will serve as a place of comfort and comradery for our veteran heroes.
