    Name: Veterans Memorial Ceremony- Re-Dedication @GPHS
    Date: October 9, 2018
    Time: 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM PDT
    Event Description:
    YoungMarine MGySgt Ellie Trahern has completed a DOM Project (Distinguished Order of Merit, similar to an Eagle Scout Project) before she retired from the Young Marine program for the National Young Marines. This is quite an honor.

    It was originally a Veterans Memorial at Grants Pass High School to honor veterans. It was an area that had a plaque that was not very visible and a rose garden that was overgrown. Ellie saw this and wanted to clean it up and make it a place that continued to Honor Veterans. She approached the GP Dist 7 School Board which enthusiastically approved her project. She got many donors throughout the area that donated all the items and most of the materials for the project. 

    We are formally inviting you to help re-dedicate this area along with the Dist 7 School Board at 4:30pm on October 9th, 2018 for the Re-Dedication Ceremony

    Although Ellie is at College she worked hard to get the project done right up to the day before she left and would appreciate your support. 

    You are free to contact Me or Ellie if you have any questions
