RALEIGH COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – In October, the Raleigh County Commission announced it’s interest in moving the Veterans Museum to what is currently the sheriff’s office.
After the sheriff’s office moves to a new building in the near future, the Veterans Museum hopes to slowly move into the old building and expand its exhibits into incorporating displays to represent first responders.
The project carries a decent-sized price tag, but Commissioner Ron Hedrick says he has a plan to raise the money.
‘We’re trying to put together an annual event that [includes] local police officers and fire departments…and put together a series of games that go over a weekend,” Hedrick said. “You’ll score points on how you finish in those games and at the end you will be awarded a cup.”
Hedrick hopes the first event can be set for Flag Day, earning the event the title “The Old Glory Cup.”
