The community of Hallmark, just off Bush River Road, held a flag dedication ceremony on Armed Forces Day, May 18. Community members had recently erected a flag pole on community property at the end of Century Drive.
Veterans and first responders were honored guests.
Kattie Reninger, homeowner president, gave a dedication speech and then asked the Irmo High Air Force JROTC to present the colors. While the flag was being raised, the national anthem was played as the community looked on in appreciation.
After the ceremony homeowners and guests enjoyed coffee , juice and doughnuts.
