About the Greater Powell Veterans Memorial
The Greater Powell Veterans Memorial Foundation was formed after a local soldier was killed in action in Iraq and members of the Powell community wanted a way to remember him and all veterans as well as express gratitude for their sacrifice.
The Memorial, located in Village Green Park, was built to honor all veterans past, present and future and is a place of reflection and remembrance. Ceremonies are held three times during each year at the Memorial. Bricks that are purchased for loved ones are dedicated on Memorial Day in May and Veterans Day in November.
Note: Deadline to purchase a brick for 2017 Memorial Day Ceremony placement is Friday, April 7, 2017.
