Harry G. Gowens Memorial Park dedication
Dedication of the Harry G. Gowens Memorial Park on Via de Luna Drive was held at 5:30 p.m. this evening. A small Boy Scout Color Guard advanced the Colors and led attendees in the Pledge of Allegiance. A Pensacola News Journal photographer captures the moment. In the distance, Ice Pilots cheerleaders are in attendance. I think Harry would have liked that.
Savannah Green, a Pensacola Beach resident, sang the National Anthem with full confidence and effortlessly. I could not believe the voice that came out of this tiny 7th grader.
ICE MAN!! The Ice Pilots' mascot was also in attendance to the delight of the children. The playground echoed with laughter.
