Walton County Veterans Memorial has had an exciting 2016 year to date. We are proud to announce our 2016 Groundbreaking for Fallen Heroes Memorial Garden to be held 10:00 am on Friday, September 2, 2016 at the site of the memorial at the Walton County Courthouse/Government Building 303 S Hammond DR, Monroe, GA 30655, with several prominent speakers and Veterans from all across our community. Walton County Veterans Memorial looks forward to seeing everyone there! The Garden will pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our freedoms. This garden will be home to the Lt. Helton Foundation Memorial, the VFW Memorial. Dedication of the Fallen Heroes Garden will be in November 2016. This will be the first phase of the memorial and with the support of our friends and the community, we will be able to complete the memorial in 2017.
It’s been a great year for us at the memorial. Our volunteers have been at all types of community events throughout the county. We appreciate our friends at the Monroe Farmer’s Market, Independence Parades at Loganville and Social Circle and upcoming at the Veterans Appreciation, Walnut Grove High School Football Game – Thank You for Your Support!
