Rainy, cold weather did not dampen the spirit at last Saturday’s Stillwater Veterans’ Wall dedication activities, with attendees ranging from Vietnam veterans to toddlers taking part in an emotional and patriotic event. The highlight of the morning was the unveiling of the Stillwater Veterans’ Memorial Wall, bearing the name of approximately 2,200 former or current residents who served, or are serving, in the United States military. The project was spear-headed by former Columbus Elementary School teacher Jeanne Harsha and her second grade class in 2011. A handful of those students, who are now 8th graders, took part to see the finished product. Throughout the day, and in the days since, it is a common sight to drive by the wall in Railroad Park and see people searching for their names.
