Patriotism can be a complicated topic, but the new non-profit Hamilton Flourishing believes it is worth discussing. Join them for a conversation facilitated by Retired Col. Frank Hughes on what it looks like for everyday people to be leaders and great citizens.
The event will be held Tuesday, May 21, from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Chattanooga Public Library First Floor Auditorium.
Col. Hughes acknowledges not everyone is going to join the military and he has personally led a civilian life for a number of years now. He noted, “In our time together, I really want to explore the question ‘How can patriotism be shown by a citizen?’”
Col. Hughes serves on multiple boards including Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprises Board of Directors, Chattanooga Area Food Bank Board of Directors, Cherokee Council’s Board of Directors, the Medal of Honor Heritage Center Board of Trustees and is a trustee for Bright School. He is also an active member of the Chattanooga Rotary Club and actively sponsors exchange students with other Rotary Clubs around the world. Col. Hughes served on multiple tours of duty with the Marines.
