Alamance County Fallen Heroes Memorial Committee, Ladies Auxiliary of the Graham Fire Department
The monument will cost an estimated $200,000 to build; $116,000 has been raised thus far.
The monument will honor nine police officers, four firefighters, and two EMS workers who have lost their lives while on duty since 1934.
The monument will be located on the South side of the Alamance Children's Museum near a lot near Maple Street in Graham.
The memorial site will include tree, shrub, and hedge landscaping.
The memorial to honor fallen heroes from Alamance County was an idea inspired by Scott Wicker and Steve Lineberry. The Alamance County Fallen Heroes Memorial Committee then began to create plans to develop a memorial near the Children's Museum in Graham; it was publicly announced in 2010. The memorial is currently in the process of being built and the layout was constructed by a landscaping director at Elon University, Tom Flood. David Leonard, a fire marshal and part of the Alamance County Fallen Heroes Committee was able to secure support from the Alamance County Commissioners after making a presentation on the status of the Fallen Heroes Memorial on April 19, 2010.
