Van Zandt CO Veterans Memorial

$805 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 26 months
The Van Zandt County Veterans Memorial foundation is a grass roots organization of county citizens representing the communities of Ben Wheeler, Canton, Colfax, Edgewood, Edom, Fruitvale, Grand Saline, Martins Mill, Myrtle Springs, Van, Wills Point and others. Canton was chosen as the site of the Van Zandt County Veterans Memorial plaza. As the county seat of Van Zandt County, and centrally located, Canton provides a prominent location for a Memorial plaza for the citizens of Van Zandt County to honor our cherished military sons and daughters.

The Memorial foundation is committed to constructing and maintaining a Memorial honoring our Van Zandt County military. Groundbreaking for the Memorial took place in January 2009, and construction began in April 2009.

Yet for the Memorial to achieve these goals, generous donations from individuals and organizations are needed. Fundraising is an ongoing effort. From constructing the Memorial, to maintaining a perpetual care fund, the Foundation will ensure that the Van Zandt County Veterans Memorial will last for many generations to come.

Please consider making a tax-exempt donation to this project honoring our American military! Donations can be sent to:

Memorial Board meetings are on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 12pm noon. All meetings are open to the public.

The Memorial also hosts Welcome Home Soldier, a project honoring our troops from Van Zandt County returning home from the end of their overseas tours, or on their mid-tour leave, from Afghanistan and Iraq.
