VFW Build the walk Memorial
August 24, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
We are building a memorial walk that will have a sidewalk and stations for each war with benches for resting and three flags and podium for ceremonies. We want to have this project completed by Veterans Day. There will be a Gazebo at the end of the walk. This will serve as a place for Veterans and families to visit and reflect. It will also help with those who have PTSD to have a place to go to meditate.
A.B.A.T.E of Lexington has agreed to assist in coordination with other motorcycle organizations to attend. Thanks folks.
Estimated costs are $5000.00 +/-. Donations are going to be accepted throughout the project and after. Grading and concrete work has been donated. Signs for the different wars have been donated.
Anyone who donates will have the company or individual names placed on a plaque at the memorial site.
We plan on having news coverage of the dedication ceremony along with a Honor Guard and Military vehicle display.
Dedication will be on November 11, 2019 at 11 am.
The VFW Post has a Flag Retirement Ceremony scheduled for that day and we thought it would be a good opportunity to show the community how to respectfully retire the flags.
