Wissahickon School District Veteran Memorial
Will you join WEOF in building this memorial to our community veterans?
To demonstrate our deep appreciation for the brave men and women who serve to protect our country and citizens, Wissahickon School District plans to erect a memorial in honor of all local veterans. The memorial will be located in a highly visible location at the front of Wissahickon High School, 500 Houston Road, Ambler, near the stadium parking lot.
Additionally, the district will recognize WHS/AHS alumni veterans in the digital high school Wall of Honor in the WHS Audion Lobby, which will feature bios and videos of our veterans.
With your donation to our Education Foundation (WEOF), we hope to raise $40,000 to start the memorial construction in January 2019 with an unveiling celebration on Memorial Day 2019. Development of the digital display will also begin in 2019.
Please consider a sponsorship for this noble effort!
