Community Christmas Project

River Valley High School's American History and AP Government students would like to welcome all veterans and the community to our first annual " Remembering Our Veterans Healing Field." This event will be to honor all veterans and will be dedicated to our Vietnam war veterans who perished from Ohio and even more specifically those who lost their life from Gallia County.  The display will include 2,997 flags representing the number of Ohio veterans who perished and also 12 wreaths for our Gallia County fallen heroes.  The event will be located in front of River Valley HIgh School November 10th, 11th, and 12th and will be illuminated at night.  We would like to welcome visitors to drive past the field between the hours of 6:00pm to 10:30pm.  We ask that those observing remain in their vehicle and drive by to observe the healing field. We would like to thank Dr. Denise Shockley and the S.T.E.P.S. program for providing our flags, Chad Wallace our resource officer for securing our lighting, Angie Petrie and our Art Club for our wreaths, Jeremy Peck's help with posters and Bill Holcomb and Matthew Huck's VoAg Department for their help with set up. If you have any questions about this event you can email Brea McClung at gl_bmcclung@gallialocal.org.
