LOUISVILLE, Ky. (PRWEB) July 06, 2018
On October 11, 2017 in Marietta, OH, ground was broken on a Gold Star Families Memorial Monument project. During that ceremony, Peoples Bank President and CEO, Chuck Sulerzyski, announced that the bank would offer funding in support of the establishment of permanent Gold Star Families Memorial Monuments in the communities it serves throughout Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky in partnership with the Hershel “Woody” Williams Medal of Honor Foundation. To date, this partnership, along with the diligent efforts of local Gold Star Families Memorial Monument committees, has resulted in the establishment of two Gold Star Families Memorial Monuments.
The first to come to fruition through this collective effort, was the Marietta, Ohio Gold Star Families Memorial Monument http://hwwmohf.org/marietta-oh.html dedicated on June 23, 2018. This was the 38th Gold Star Families Memorial Monument to be established as a part of the Hershel “Woody” Williams Medal of Honor Foundation’s national effort to honor, recognize, and serve Gold Star Families and their fallen Heroes all across America. The second Monument collaborated on through this partnership will be dedicated Saturday July 7, 2018 in North Canton, Ohio http://hwwmohf.org/canton-oh.html. This will be the 39th Gold Star Families Memorial Monument. Public is welcome.
