Barnesville Middle School staff and students would like to recognize the families and extended families for serving our great Nation. The sacrifice and willingness to protect and honor each of us, is one of great courage and valor.

The staff would like to invite area veterans and active duty military personnel to come and enjoy a special celebration, on Nov. 12, in honoring these members and dedicating the Veterans Memorial at the middle school.

The middle school will be hosting Jeffrey G. Hays, District 5 Commander of the VFW, as the speaker for the event. A special military dedication will be held for the new Veterans Memorial Project, immediately following the presentation. Veterans and active duty military personnel are welcome to join them for coffee and donuts at 9 a.m.

The staff would like to thank Clifford Collins and his family for their financial support of this amazing Veterans Memorial project. Other contributors to the Project include Braido Memorials and Bostic Construction Co. LLC.
