Dedication day is almost here! After working hard for over a year, the Pickens County Veterans Memorial Park (PCVMP) group has reached its goal – to build a memorial to pay tribute to all veterans: those who have fought to protect and serve our nation in the past, those who are serving and those who will serve in the future.
The dedication service for the memorial is scheduled for August 1, at 11:00 a.m. Dedication activities include a formal military ceremony including the presentation of colors, singing of the national anthem, an Air Force flyover and a 21 gun salute.
Speakers will include a representative from the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), the local post of the American Legion, a representative from the Marine Corp league, local PCVMP members and local business supporters.
The memorial, built to stand the test of time to honor all veterans, will be dedicated to the five branches of military service. The memorial also incorporates a “Bricks of Honor” program, a tangible way of honoring someone who has or will serve in the military, for a $125 dollar donation.
PCVMP is a non-profit, tax exempt, 502© (3) organization and donations are tax deductible. If you wish to donate in lieu of purchasing a brick, you may send a donation to PCVMP at P.O. Box 247, Talking Rock, GA 30175; or go to smile.amazon.com/ch/81-2961972 and a small portion of your purchases will be donated.
This memorial will be an ongoing effort and is being made possible strictly through donations. For more information, visit www.pickensvetmemorial.com, call 706.253.0501, or email email@example.com. Find us on facebook at Pickens County Veterans Memorial Park. Hope to see you on August 1 at the dedication.
