I am writing this letter on behalf of Beardstown Community Unit School District #l5. As many in the community are already aware, the Beardstown. VFW and Project Tiger Pride have cooperatively installed and dedicated a BHS Military Service Memorial on the campus at Beardstown High School.
On behalf of our district I want to thank all of those who had a helping hand in this project. From those who first envisioned it, to those who donated funds or equipment and all who have donated countless hours to bring this project to fruition. Visitors to our campus will now be greeted by this beautifully landscaped memorial. It will also serve as a reminder to all of us of the gratitude we owe to all who have served our country and especially to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
If you have not seen this project I encourage you to come out to the school and personally visit it. You will be moved and impressed by what you see. To everyone who had a hand in this project; well done and thank you!
