Memorial Update & News

On May 18 and 19, your memorial foundation was honored to present 44 individuals who had served in the Missouri Fire Service. Russell H. Hayes with the Eldorado Springs Volunteer Fire Department was in the Line of Duty. Our Candlelight service was held at the Auxvasse Elementary School Gym due to severe weather, but the morning service was conducted at the memorial. 

That was the last time we should have to move the service from the memorial grounds now that we have a new building there. Weather cooperated long enough for the Sunday service to be held at the memorial. Missouri Department of Public Safety Director Sandy Karsten was our guest speaker. 

Our service dates for 2020 will be the May 16-17. The “Thank You” list for all of the assistance in making the 2019 services possible is very long and includes dozens of people that are not on the Foundation Board. The enormous support of your Foundation makes all of this possible. Thank you!
