Village of Tangipahoa honors veterans

Despite the morning heat, residents along with elected officials, students and honored guests gathered in the community park inside the small Village of Tangipahoa to honor local veterans with a new marble monument last Wednesday, August 16.

The dedication ceremony featured the presentation of a plaque, which was presented by Alderwoman Shelia Martin, containing the names of 48 local veterans and will hang inside the small community's city hall building.

Wednesday's event was spearheaded by Alderwoman Debra Cyprian who has been continuously working to create a place for the village to hold future events.
