The monument showed up today and we are excited. The final pieces of the memorial are starting to be set in place. Here are pictures over the last couple of weeks and how far we have come.
Flag day has a new meaning for the National Teachers Hall of Fame. On March 10th little pink flags were placed at the corner of 18th and Merchant, next to the one room school house, to mark the dig site for the Memorial to Fallen Educators. Excitement can be felt in the office, as we know this is the first step in a long anticipated process. Between now and the June 12th dedication, land will be excavated, concrete poured, stone and marble will be placed, wiring run, tears shed, and money raised to complete the important project honoring heroes that have giving their lives in the line of duty. Although we have raised enough to begin this project we are still short about $150,000 of our goal to complete and maintain this memorial. Any amount will help us complete this dream.
