‘Wall of Honor’ introduced to Bedford Farmers’ Market
BEDFORD, Va. (WDBJ) - A new addtion has made its way into the Bedford Farmers’ Market.
A mobile ‘Wall of Honor’ will be present at the market through July.
Folks are invited to add names of those they know in the military on the wall.
The farmers’ market made the wall as a way to honor folks who have served or are serving in the military.
They also want people to connect to local history.
“Bedford itself is a really important area for retired military,” said Erika McFaden, Bedford Farmers’ Market manager. “We do have the D-Day Memorial, we have the Bedford Boys Tribute Center, there’s a lot of retired military here so I thought it might be a good way for people to get to know those destinations better, to honor their loves ones, to kind of tell stories about who they know in the military.”
They say the wall could return next year if it’s popular enough.
