The Bryan Fire Department Fire Prevention Poster Contest is back this year. Kids in Pre-K through 12th grade in Bryan are encouraged to use their artistic skills to help bring awareness to fire prevention.
Veterans will be honored in a new way at the Bryan City Cemetery, beginning this fall.
Ellen Fuller with Wreaths Across America is spearheading an effort to construct a granite memorial honoring Brazos Valley veterans that will be located in the veterans section of Bryan City Cemetery.
The memorial is planned to be 8 feet long and 2 ½ feet tall and will feature seven medallions for each of the United States uniformed service branches: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Merchant Marines, Navy and Space Force.
An eighth medallion for POW-MIA (Prisoners of War-Missing in Action) will be affixed to a VA-style marker, engraved with the word “Unknown.” The City of Bryan is donating plot 21 (symbolizing the 21-gun salute) in the veterans section of the Bryan City Cemetery for this meaningful remembrance.
The stone memorial will be located near the flagpole and will face the entrance. The Unknown headstone will be located at the end of the first row in the veterans section.
Save the date! Members of the public are invited to join in the dedication for the memorial at 10 a.m. on Nov. 11, 2022 at the Bryan City Cemetery. Additional details will follow.
