A New Star-Spangled Banner Will Wave!

In honor of Independence Day, Hammond city officials, residents and community leaders met at Hammond Square yesterday morning for a ceremony and dedication of a new American flag that representatives hope will act as a beacon for the area.

Hammond Square Flag Pole

The 80’ flagpole will fly a 15’ X 20’ American flag that will be part of the new gateway project at Interstate 12, leading to both the Hammond and Ponchatoula communities at exit 40. The flag will be visible to all that travel I-12, calling attention to the area by both locals and tourists. The flag is located at the northwest corner of I-12 and Highway 51 near Olive Garden Italian Restaurant.

Tangipahoa Parish President Robbie Miller, Hammond Mayer Pete Panepinto, Ponchatoula Mayor Bob Zabbia, Stan Dameron with Home Mortgage Authority, and Grady Brame with Stirling Properties were in attendance for the ceremonial flag-raising festivities. Boy Scout Troop 170 was on hand to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and Phillip Monteleone performed a flyover in his Vietnam Era ’68-70 Bell OH-58 Kiowa helicopter.

Hammond Square Flag Dedication

The Hammond-Ponchatoula Sunrise Rotary Club worked with the City of Hammond, Hammond Square, Stirling Properties and the Hammond-Tangipahoa Home Mortgage Authority for more than a year to bring this project to fruition.

Stirling Properties is proud to have been a part of this development at Hammond Square. Thanks to the tremendous efforts of The Hammond-Ponchatoula Sunrise Rotary Club, city officials, supporters and everyone that came out for the celebration.

We salute all the men and women of the United States armed forces on Independence Day, and every day! #StirlingProud

Summer Celebrations for Mom and Dad at the Square

The Place to Celebrate...Hammond Square

Mother’s Day and Father’s Day remind us to say “Thanks” for everything our parents have done for us over the years. Hammond Square wants to also take part in saying thanks to the moms and dads that take their kids to the Square for new school outfits, frozen treats at Menchie’s, sporting goods at Hibbets and Foot Locker, and whatever else that finds you driving down Palace Drive.

Hammond Square partnered with North Oaks Health Systems, the local hospital, to put on a free Women’s health event the weekend before Mother’s day. The heart and stroke screenings helped make sure Mom was on track for many Mother’s Days to come. We had some great tenant participation, with Dillard’s free bra fittings, their cosmetics extravaganza, and a summer fashion show! We brought in a Pampered Chef representative to show Moms and people shopping for Mom some new gadgets for the kitchen. A financial planning representative from Primerica was set up to answer any financial health questions anyone may have had.

We made sure to have some fun activities for everyone. North Cypress, a local health club close to the mall, hosted two free fitness classes, Zumba and Body Combat. Unfortunately, we found out most people out for a day of shopping are not ready for a professionally-led athletic class! North Cypress is a great partner to work with, we just have to try something different for the next health event. Painting With A Twist was another free activity we had for the day. An art  instructor teaches everyone, from kids to adults who have never picked up a paint brush, how to paint a scene in 1 hour. We had moms, kids, and dads as art students for the day in this fun and relaxing activity. All who participated were excited to head home with their very own Louisiana sunset work of art!

We knew we had a little more of a challenge to honor dads for Father’s Day. Most men don’t think of heading to a shopping center to have some fun with the kids, so we had to get creative…and we had to break out the big toys! This Saturday, June 15th, the day before Father’s Day, Hammond Square is working with Louisiana Cat, Volvo Rents, Evergreen Tractor, the local Police and Fire Department to host Dad’s Day at the Square. In the parking lot across from Albasha from 10 am to 2 pm, we will have large construction machines, tractors, ATV’s, a new police car and a fire truck. This is Dad’s chance to get up close to the machines and even see a couple of big toys he might want to add to his collection!

Dad won’t walk away empty handed from the event. We have a craft table where little ones can make their Dad some great gifts from a giant fish, to a fancy guitar, and even an oversized tie. From Hammond Square, 100 Dad’s will receive mugs and 100 kids will get hard hats!

We want to bring out the silly side of Dad as well. Hammond Square brought in fun photo stand in’s. Dad can become a surfer man, a giant hot dog, a captain of a boat and a few other fun adventure scenes you’ll have to come by to see. The best thing is you use your own camera to take dad’s picture so no waiting to get something back. It is Facebook ready instantly if your dad, or you, are into social media.

Our Mother’s Day event was an overall success. We hope to say the same thing about our Dad’s Day at the Square. See you this Saturday!  Shop local. Shop Tangi!
