Veterans Memorial Dedication

By Gretta Becay


The idea for a Veterans Memorial in Byron is now a reality. At the dedication ceremony on Memorial Day, Mayor Daryl Glassmaker addressed the large group of spectators who attended the solemn event and stayed through the rain to hear the speakers, honor the flag, and bow their heads in prayer. The Memorial came to be built through the efforts of a dedicated group of volunteers who worked for years to design, plan, and raise enough funds to build the impressive addition to Byron. It is located just west of the Bear Roundabout. For more information about the memorial, visit
