“Here at Ray Price, Inc., we were fortunate, but not all of our neighbors were,” said Ray Price. “Our goal is to recognize what we collectively went through. There were people who lost their lives and their homes in nearby communities such as Stony Brook, and many of our own neighbors lost their businesses.”
Since April 16, 2011, many businesses have rebuilt, including Earp’s Seafood, after being granted a special permit to get the 42-year-old building back up to code. Coats Body Shop is still rebuilding along with other businesses that are still undergoing repairs.
“I don't know that our neighborhood will ever look exactly as it did before, but we’ve seen countless volunteers and support organizations pull together to rebuild South Raleigh. We want to pay tribute to the spirit of our community and celebrate the people who have worked so hard to rebuild.”
The “One Year Later” celebration will take place at 1126 South Sanders Street. The day’s activities include a Community Tribute program with opening address by Kris Weiss, Director of Marketing for Ray Price, State and local representatives will be on hand there will be a slide show with a special music performance by American Idol Finalist, Adam Lee Decker. The Wells Family Band will also perform, and there’ll be food and lots of entertainment with prize giveaways.
