CAROLINA SHORES—Town commissioner John Russo says the town has never celebrated a national or patriotic holiday, which he says is the idea behind having a town events center.
A facility like that would enable the town and its residents to do so, he said, speaking at Monday’s town commissioners workshop.
Every other town around them celebrates one of those holidays, he said.
“We should be able to do one or two,” he said. “That would be a starting point to see if people are willing to want to celebrate our freedom.”
