It was a day of triumph and celebration as about 300 people – family, friends and members of the Indian Land community – gathered at the nearly completed Lodge, a new amenity center in Sun City Carolina Lakes, to pay a special tribute to the community’s World War II veterans.
The Oct. 6 ceremony and dedication of the display to honor all Sun City Carolina Lakes veterans was two years in the making.
