Georgia Master Gardener Association Grant

This is a special thank you to the Georgia Master Gardener
Association for the grant funds to provide landscaping in the
fountain area. This grant along with the other patriotic
groups and citizens made it possible to add this feature to our
Memorial Park. We are grateful for the opportunity to show
our appreciation to the Veterans listed on our
Killed In Action and other Walls of Honor. We are currently
working on Wall number 17 and 18. Is your veteran family
member or friend on the Wall of Honor? Check and see by going to:
If you don't find him there call 770-836-1111 or 770-832-0671.
Please remember that the veterans needs to have a connection
to Carroll County and be honorable discharged from the
USA military service.
