PITTSBORO — It will be a special night in Pittsboro on Friday, August 30 when Northwood hosts Lee County in football.

And while the football game will be the centerpiece of the evening, the most special festivity likely will be the annual appreciation shown to our military and first responders.

“Northwood is having our annual Military and First Responders Appreciation Night August 30 during our football game against Lee County and we are excited to host this event again,” said Northwood Co-Athletic Director Cameron Vernon. “ All current military, veterans and first responders are asked to arrive by 6:30 pm for the line up.“

Vernon says that before the game that Northwood will have all military and first responders gather at midfield for recognition followed by the playing of the national anthem.

“It’s the least we can do for all these men and women who put their lives on the line every day to allow us the freedoms that this country enjoys,” continued Vernon. “Without them, none of this would be possible. So we need to always let them know that they are appreciated and how much that they are respected for the jobs they do and the sacrifices that they have and continue to make.”

Admission is free to all military and first responders.

“We hope that you can make it and we appreciate all that you do,” Vernon said.
