The Town of Matthews will contribute $5,500 to bring the Vietnam Moving Wall memorial to the area.
Town commissioners voted Monday, April 9, to give the donation using money from the town’s tourism fund. The donation means the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2423 in Indian Trail is about $7,000 away from the $40,000 needed to bring the replica memorial to the area for public viewing. The wall is half the size of the actual monument in Washington, D.C.
For more information or to donate, call Brian Boze at 704-507-4782.
