A special flag-raising ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Shannon Medical Center flagpole, 120 E. Harris Ave., to honor organ, eye and tissue donors. Shannon is hosting the ceremony in conjunction with the Texas Organ Sharing Alliance. A local recipient family will share their story during the event. Cake will be served on the hospital’s second floor following the ceremony.
