The Cary Town Band will be performing patriotic music throughout the event and Carolina Veterans Support Group will be providing a field of flags. Those that would like to sponsor a flag can do so by visiting www.cvsgnc.org. The Town will again offer toy soldiers that citizens can write a soldier's name on and place in the memorial as a way to honor all of those who have served in the armed forces. These soldiers will be saved and placed in the monument every Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
