Beebe Gold Star Family Monument Dedication Ceremony

The purpose of the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument is to honor Gold Star Families, preserve the memory of the fallen, and stand as a stark reminder that Freedom is not free. This stunning black granite monument features two sides. One side bears the words: Gold Star Families Memorial Monument, a tribute to Gold Star Mothers, Fathers, and Relatives who have sacrificed a Loved One for our Freedom. The other side tells a story through the four granite panels: Homeland, Family, Patriot, and Sacrifice. The scenes on each panel are a reflection of each community’s Gold Star Families and their fallen Heroes. At the center of this tribute is the most distinct feature of the monument, the cut out which represents the Loved One who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the name of Freedom.



Beebe City Council has unanimously approved the construction of this monument at Veterans Park located at the corner of N. Pecan St and W. Dewitt Henry Drive and all of the funds have been raised to complete this project. Medal of Honor recipient and the designer of this monument, Hershel "Woody" Williams is planning to attend this dedication ceremony. The ceremony will be held Friday, February 23rd. Time is TBD. The public is encouraged to attend. Gold Star Families are our special guests.
