B-17 Memorial Dedication in Mill Creek

Free
Mark your calendars!! The Mill Class of 2025 has an exciting announcement to make! The B-17 Memorial Dedication will be Saturday, June 5, 2021, at 10am!!
Please join us at the Mill Creek Community Center located at 105 E. Main Street Mill Creek, OK 74856 for this special ceremony.
These kids learned about this crash the end of their 6th grade year, and they made it their mission to build a monument for these soldiers who paid the ultimate price during WWII. They sold cookies, t-shirts, and had fundraisers, and with YOUR support their dream is now a reality!! This class will graduate from the 8th grade on May 15th, and they will do so proudly knowing that these soldiers will be honored they way they deserve.
We are busy planning the dedication. Please help us spread the word!!! We would love to have a big turnout! We have family members of some of these soldiers coming as our special guests. We are still looking to contact family members, so you sharing this post will help so much!!
Below are “our” guys as we call them. Each time we would find a picture, or we would receive one that we had struggled to find, we would be happy and sad. Tears fell many times. We feel like we know them now. They were all so brave and so young. Please take a look at them and read their names and where they were from. Say a prayer for their families…..and all of our troops past, present, and future. Freedom is not free, and on June 5, 2021, we will honor these men who paid the ultimate price on February 12, 1944.
We hope to see you there! Thank you!
