Elma EduKids Honor Traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial during Visit to the Knox Farm State Park
Posted July 8, 2009on:
The EduKids Early Childhood Education Center located at 6961 Seneca Street in Elma recently paid tribute to our Vietnam Veterans and Country as The Moving Wall™ made its way to the Knox Farm State Park in East Aurora.
Teachers and staff helped the children prepare for the event by encouraging red, white, and blue clothing along with the creation of banners and stars made during class.
The Moving Wall™ is a traveling half-size replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country for more than twenty years. The traveling memorial aims to share it with those who do not have the opportunity to visit the Washington memorial.
Western New Yorkers viewed the Vietnam Memorial Wall last week as part of the American Veterans Traveling Tribute, through the cooperative of the Greater East Aurora Chamber of Commerce and American Legion Post 362 at the Knox Farm State Park.
