About Us

The Bell Tower Memorial (BTM) is a non-profit organization helping to preserve our country’s history and promote learning through various programs, events and the construction of a Community Memorial. Started in 2016 with a determined Board and local volunteers, the organization and its strategy have evolved over time, but always with the same mission: to Honor, Educate and Remember those who have served our country and our community.

So much of our country's military history and first-hand accounts of bravery by our hometown soldiers is not being shared or recorded. Many wars have been fought and many military personnel have stories to tell. The Bell Tower Memorial is a place to preserve these stories, share them with the community and teach future generations the invaluable lessons learned through the sacrifices of our own family members, neighbors and friends.

In addition to building the Community Memorial, BTM also organizes events like our annual Veterans Oral History Project, Veterans in the Classroom, Take a Vet to Lunch, and more! Feel free to explore our website to find more information about our organization, what we're doing in the community and how can get involved.
