World War II Memorial Rededication

The Museum invites the public to a rededication of the World War II memorial at 1:00 p.m. November 5, 2022, on the east side of the Museum Square. This will be the 25th anniversary for the Memorial. Plans include a military flyover, music, reading of names, and a Military Honor Guard and flag presentation. Plans are in the works to also dedicate a Korean and Vietnam memorial for those soldiers who gave their lives in support of freedom. Bronze tablets have been added to the WWII memorial with raised lettering to better honor our fallen heroes. Additional finishing touches will take place before the November ceremony. We will also be announcing additional historic marker renovation projects in the county. Donations from the community may be made online at http://weblink.donorperfect.com/MarkerMatch
