The Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument Association (PCVMA) will host a ceremonial groundbreaking for the city’s new Veterans Monument at 10:30 a.m. Nov. 15 at the new Town Center in the 5200 block of Peachtree Parkway. The groundbreaking will take place near the actual monument site. The Town Center is expected to be complete in spring 2019.
Mayor Mike Mason and the PCVMA’s executive director, Bob Ballagh will make remarks. The program will begin with an invocation led by Leland Armbright, Senior Pastor at Christ the King Church followed by the Pledge of Allegiance and recognition of guests and major donors.
When complete the Monument will feature a 2,500 square-foot plaza, seven sculptures, and a central pillar topped by an eagle atop the globe to represent the presence of the U.S. Armed Forces across the world. The sculptures represent each of the Armed Forces and Federal Military Reserve components.
“We welcome everyone in the community to come and celebrate the beginning of the construction of the Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument,” said Bob Ballagh.
Visitors should use the Medlock Bridge Road entrance between Bush Road and Peachtree Corners Circle and look for signs to parking locations.
