Carencro Veterans Memorial breaks ground
July 2 2014 — With the 4th of July only days away, many around the Acadiana area are showing their patriotism and the City of Carencro is joining in. Earlier this morning at Carencro City Hall, Mayor Glenn Brasseaux (Brass- OH) along with war veterans, unveiled the plans to start building a Veterans Memorial located right in front of City Hall.
Carencro Mayor Glenn Brasseaux said, "Well it's just our small part to honor all the veterans that have served our country. Some of them have given up their lives, and you know we still have men and women that are defending our country today. And I think its just to memorialize our veterans that have served and continue to serve. "
Mayor Brasseaux says they plan to finish the project in three to four months just in time for Veterans day. If you are interested in donating a brick of your own, you can find out more information by going to Carencro.org
