This past summer the Davis Junction Scott Twp. Historical society moved and rehabilitated the Veterans Memorial that was formerly located on the Methodist Church property. The Society would like to thank everyone who donated or helped in any way. This was a big undertaking for the small group and the Society is very proud of the restoration. The Memorial is now located on the Museum grounds on West Pacific St. and has been beautifully restored. The Memorial was first dedicated in 1944/45 and has an up to date listing of the Davis Junction area veterans.
On sunday, November 13, 2016 the Memorial will be rededicated and there will also be a ceremony honoring Veterans Day. The Stillman Valley American Legion will be assisting in this memorable occasion. Everyone is invited.
The program will begin at 1:30 pm with a Welcome and Pledge of Allegiance let by President Kim Zinkel. Nelson Preston of the Legion will be the guest speaker. The group will join in singing the Star Spangled Banner, followed by a presentation by the Fireing Squad, Taps, and a Soldiers Cross will be built. Seating will be available.
Following the ceremonies, refreshments will be served in the Museum. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend this memorable event.
