Carrollton Honors Veterans with New Memorial Monument

November 03, 2016 /

The City of Carrollton is dedicated to honoring the service members who make their home in our community. To acknowledge the sacrifices of our armed service men and women, City Council will unveil a newly constructed veterans memorial in a public ceremony at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, November 11. The ceremony will feature the Blanton Elementary Kids Choir and the R.L. Turner High School NJROTC Color Guard. City officials, including councilmember Bob Garza who spearheaded the effort, will be in attendance as well as a staffer from the office of State Representative Ron Simmons. “Placing a memorial monument by the Senior Center was a great fit as many of the seniors visiting the center on a daily basis are veterans,” Garza said. “The location made sense in that it would also add to the Veterans Luncheon and 4th of July celebration held there annually.”
