Beardstown Veterans Wall receives addition

Beardstown Veteran’s Day ceremonies will be conducted at the Veteran’s Memorial on Wall Street by the National Guard Armory. Ceremonies will begin at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 11 and will include musical presentations by the BHS Elite Choir. Following this ceremony the Color Guard will report to Oak Grove cemetery to render honors to fallen Vets. The new wall addition will be on display along with a new bench dedicated to the Guthrie-Pierce VFW Post 1239. The new wall has been necessitated by the overwhelming response to fill the two existing walls with Veteran’s names. The new wall has room for 600 more names.
