Veterans Day Program at Fairfield Harbour

Fairfield Harbour, a residential boating and golf community located 15 minutes from historic New Bern, has announced the community’s plans to host a program of recognition and remembrance in honor of Veterans Day, which will be held on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m.

The program, which is open to the public, will begin with the permanent installation of emblematic flags representing each branch of the U.S. military at the Fairfield Harbour main entrance, the Shoreline entrance gates.

Following the flag ceremony, the community will host a light reception in the Fire Hall, which will feature Maj. Gen. Tom Braaten, USMC, (Retired), as the event’s guest speaker.

Due to limited space and seating, reservations are required and can be made by calling (252) 633-5500.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
