Library to be named in memory and in tribute to local soldiers who have fallen in service to our country.
On Friday, May 28, 2010 at 11 a.m. in the Rockville Town Square Plaza, there will be a ceremony to formally rename the Rockville Library as the Rockville Memorial Library.
Councilmember Trachtenberg will be participating in the ceremony with Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett, District 17 Senator Jennie Forehand, Montgomery County Public Libraries Director Parker Hamilton, members of the Montgomery County Commission on Veterans Affairs, family members who have lost loved ones in the conflicts, veterans from various wars and the Secretary of the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs Edward Chow Jr.
The color guard, bagpipers and bugler will be provided by the Montgomery County Department of Police.
Participants will unveil the recently installed signage reflecting the library’s new name.
A display of personal memorabilia loaned by families who lost loved ones may be seen in the first floor display cases inside the library.
A continuing presentation of the names (including some photos of those who died in recent conflicts) is being shown on the monitor just inside the front entrance to the library.
