As a way of sustaining itself, the Lincoln County Warrior Exhibit is offering gift-wrapping services through Christmas at its new location just off the Fayetteville square.
“All proceeds will benefit the exhibit,” said Linda Williams, president of Friends of Fayetteville-Lincoln County Veterans, which was organized as a nonprofit organization earlier this year to support the exhibit, a pictorial tribute to well over a thousand veterans, the men and women of our community who have served in the military.
Hours for the exhibit, as well as gift wrapping, are from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
The exhibit first opened on Veterans Day 2015 at the Fayetteville Recreation Center, but over recent months, efforts were undertaken to bring the exhibit downtown. The building at 113 Main Ave. North, just off the square, was renovated by one of the sheriff’s work crews, comprised of inmates and headed by Mike Davis, supervisor. Last week, the exhibit opened at its new location.
Donations are also being accepted to assist in sustaining the exhibit. To make a contribution, contact Williams at 931-993-8353. Checks may be made payable to Friends of Fayetteville-Lincoln County Veterans (FoFLCV).
Photos continue to be accepted
Photos of veterans from across our community are still being accepted by the exhibit. Submission envelopes are located at the exhibit.
Persons who wish to have their veterans included are asked to submit a five-inch by seven-inch photo of the veteran (it doesn’t have to be in uniform), along with pertinent information, including the veteran’s name, rank, branch of service, and service dates, as well as which war era in which he or she served.
A $25 charge is needed for each submission to cover framing costs.
