Sanders honored, roasted during ceremony

After all the accolades and jokes, Sanders had an opportunity to address the large crowd. He mentioned that it seemed odd to attend an event that celebrated his life, a life he said he hoped wasn’t ending anytime soon.

“Maybe you people know something I don’t,” Sanders joked. “I hope you’re wrong.”

The Havelock Chamber of Commerce put on the event at the Havelock Tourist and Event Center. Sanders called the gathering a humbling experience.

“Being here, this is not something I ever would have done, but don’t think it’s not appreciated,” he said.

Sanders then began to thank many in the audience, including city workers and staff.

“It is humbling to look out and see so many great people who have made such a difference in my life,” he said.

Sanders particularly thanked Commissioner Danny Walsh.
