#Activate10: Dubois PTA looks to honor veterans; seeks service cross sponsors

“Our community is large and wildly diverse, which is at the same time our strength and our weakness. #Activate10 is a movement seeking to increase communication between individuals and organizations across Fremont County and to promote positive action in our communities.”

(Dubois, WY) – The Dubois Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is spearheading an initiative to honor all veterans with a “Hero Service Cross.”

Sponsors are needed for the wooden crosses. Cost ranges from $30-$80 with options for 1-3 years as well as service flags for an additional $5.

“It is going to be an amazing sight to see,” shared Dubois PTA President Melissa Claar-Reed. “[Dubois PTA] is dedicated to this project and the honoring of our service men and women.”

Their current plan is to display them publicly twice this year for two weeks each – 7 days before and after both Memorial Day and Veterans Day. The honor displays will be at the National Museum of Military Vehicles in Dubois this year.

The veterans do not have to be from Dubois or the area, Melissa noted. Anyone is welcome to honor a past or current veteran.

Additional details are shared in the flyer below.
