Community celebrates holiday by remembering a friend
MILTON -- People in Milton are out celebrating this Fourth of July. But some of the people at today's festivities were mourning the loss an event organizer.
Sam Archer passed away yesterday; he has helped put together the Freedom Car Show for years.
Archer's wife and friend Jerry Dawson discussed canceling the event, but decided it must go on in Sam’s honor.
"Sam is an individual who has coordinated so many shows in the Pensacola area for years and years, huge donations for charity, (butted to) Sam, he will be missed, he will leave a huge void in our community,” said Dawson.
But the show must go on, so tonight the community will gather for a firework show over Black Water River.
