CROSBY – The Eastside Veterans group dedicated a Monument to all Veterans last Friday, April 22 at Crosby Park. Participating in the ceremony were the Eastside Veterans Committee, chairman Bob Ward, Crosby/Huffman Chamber representative Kim Harris, representatives from Crosby ISD including superintendent Paula Patterson, Cedric Patterson, Chaplian, Judy Culbreath, Monument Chairman.
The Eastside Veterans Committee was formed in May 2014 and the sole purpose was to promote Veteran recognition and provide a memorial for the Crosby Community.
Local sponsors contributed to the initial funding for an annual “Feed the Veterans’ which grew to include a town parade, art contest with CISD, a Veterans celebration at the Crosby Stadium and casino bus trips.
The monument was provided 100% by the Eastside Veterans Committee fundraisers.
