Screaming Eagle Independence Day

By Eugenia Jones

The first annual Screaming Eagle Independence Day celebration was a definite success as those attending enjoyed games, food, live music, fellowship, fireworks, and more. The event, sponsored by Christian Appalachian Project (CAP), the Eagle/Sawyer community, Eagle/Sawyer Fire Department, local churches, Operation Share (CAP), Eagle Child and Family Development Center (CFDC-CAP), and individuals throughout the county giving private donations, was held at the CAP grounds (old Eagle School) on Highway 90.
Brinda Campbell, CAP manager at Eagle, said she was pleased with the event.
“I’ve not heard one complaint,” Campbell said happily. “All I’ve heard has been good. We are hopeful we will be able to repeat this event next July and have more events like this throughout the year. It gives everyone, including children, a place to go to socialize and have a good time.”
The event included a Veterans Wall where Veterans and family members placed names and photos honoring Veterans. Veterans were also honored during a children’s balloon release. The night ended with a fireworks display.
