Military Freedom Walk dedicated in Centreville

A pair of local dignitaries led a Veteran’s Day ceremony in Centreville Wednesday morning.
Former state legislator Cameron Brown and current State Rep. Aaron Miller took part in a program along East Main Street for the dedication of the village’s Military Freedom Walk.
Banners indicating the Military Freedom Walk were unveiled prior to the start of the ceremony. One hangs from a telephone pole along East Main Street outside the fairgrounds while the other is displayed from a pole further east near Eleanor Drive.
Wednesday’s program and the banner concept were spearheaded by Carol Snow-Penn of the Centreville Downtown Development Authority. She said the DDA is hoping to establish what will become a traditional observance of the holiday in Centreville.
Another highlight from Wednesday’s ceremony was the reading of about 130 names of Centreville and Centreville-area veterans. Snow-Penn was aided by Miller and St. Joseph County Veterans Services Director Stoney Summey in announcing the names.
