A National Guard Memorial fundraiser and cook out is scheduled to be held March 8 at the Lawrenceburg Walmart beginning at 10 a.m., according to a news release.
“At the present time our nation does not have a memorial for the U.S. National Guard men and women that have given their lives to keep us free,” organizers said. “Local Walmarts are helping raise funds to see that this happens.”
The memorial is planned to be located in Frankfort at the Boone National Guard Armory.
“Please help us pay them the respect they deserve,” organizers said in the release.
Donations will be accepted at the fundraiser.
In addition to the fundraiser, Walmart employees will also be cleaning the American Legion and Patriot Hall buildings on March 15 at 9 a.m., according to a release.
Event organizers said they’re asking for volunteers to help clean the buildings to apply for a VAP grant. “The more associates we have, the more money we can get,” organizers said. “If we have 30 associates we could possibly get $3,000. This would be donated toward the memorial.”
For more information on how to volunteer, event organizers ask individuals to contact a member of Walmart management at the Lawrenceburg Walmart.
