Carencro planning a veterans memorial site
CARENCRO (AP) — The city of Carencro plans to create a veterans memorial at City Hall.
Mayor Glenn Brasseaux said a preliminary design of the memorial, planned in front of City Hall, was crafted by architect Lynn Guidry and features granite benches and 3-foot to 4-foot granite walls or slabs on which will be etched the names of local veterans.
Brasseaux says more community support will be needed to make the memorial a reality. He says the public may purchase a memorial brick, engraved with the name of the veteran they wish to honor.
He says the city initially had hoped to complete the project by November, in time for Veterans Day; however, the project has been pushed back with a completion date by late spring 2014.
