Update on Columbia Veterans Project

By Tiffany Collins

The City of Columbia will be placing veteran flags around the Square (and, one square off of the square) starting this Memorial Day. The project honors local veterans from World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War, along with other veterans.

"We were initially planning for eight banners, and, due to demand, increased it to sixteen," say Mayor Pamela Hoots. "We again increased the number to thirty-two banners and that number is now full."

The City would like to recognize Ronnie Holt, with the local VFW, who has been assisting with the project. "Without his help we could have not done this," said Mayor Hoots.

The banner procurement has been stopped for this time due to the high demand and to get the initial project completed.

"We hope to be able to do add more veterans at a later date," Hoots noted.
