On March 25, 2015, Mayor Bobby Herndon will lead a prayer service beginning at 12:00 noon at the flagpole in front of Northport City Hall.

There has been some criticism of Mayor Herndon's decision to hold a prayer service at the city hall, but Herndon said the purpose of the service isn't to 'have church' but to have a conversation.

He hopes others will join him to pray for our nation, our military, law enforcement, fire and first responders. He also wants to pray for the safety of the pilots, performers and attendees at this weekend's upcoming air show.
