Salisbury Mayor Karen Alexander will host the Virtual Mayor’s Spirit Luncheon, Monday, August 9, from noon to 1 p.m., live via the City’s Facebook page.
This year, the Spirit Luncheon will highlight the “Luminaries” of Salisbury and Rowan County, who were the guiding lights for residents during the pandemic. “Luminaries: Recognizing Salisbury’s Lightkeepers,” is designed to uplift individuals, agencies and organizations who provided creative, exemplary, thoughtful service to the community during COVID-19.
Five CARES Act funding recipients will participate in the program and share how the funds helped serve, support and bring light to the community. Hood Seminary, Meals on Wheels Rowan, Appleseed, Prevent Child Abuse Rowan and Power Cross will each have an opportunity to share their stories.
The Mayor’s Spirit Luncheon is held annually to celebrate the multiple faiths and beliefs in the Salisbury community. The featured speakers, format and honorees shift slightly each year, but the event continues to focus on faith. The Spirit Luncheon is hosted by the Mayor of Salisbury, in conjunction with the Human Relations Council.
