The park located at the Salvation Army on West Main Street at the New Salem Highway will be dedicated to the memory of Harvie Butler on Sunday. The park dedication will take place at 12:30, Sunday afternoon.
You may recall that Butler drowned in a boating accident earlier this year on Percy Priest Lake. Butler would have been 40-years old on Sunday. The accident occurred on Labor Day at Four Corners Marina. Two boats collided and Butler was thrown from one of the boats. He was not wearing a life jacket.
Butler was the chairman for the 2013 RED Day project for Keller Williams Realty. On Sunday (December 1st), a plaque will be placed at the park that reads:
"In Loving Memory of Harvie C. Butler - Selfless Giver of Time, Knowledge, and Friendship. May All Who Play Here Embrace Every Moment of Life"
Also on Sunday, an in-house scholarship for new real estate agents will also be announced. Friends, family and members of the community are invited to the short reception that will be held at the Salvation Army building following the dedication on Sunday.
