City of Bloomingdale breaks ground on new Veterans Memorial

BLOOMINGDALE, GA (WTOC) -

The City of Bloomingdale held a groundbreaking ceremony at the future site of its Veterans Memorial Sunday. The service included Bloomingdale City Council and Mayor Wayne Tipton.

"Because we didn't just want to honor those who had gone away, but we wanted to honor all citizens who have served, men and women in the services, who have lived in the City of Bloomingdale."

"Veterans Day is a day that we give thanks for all of those who sacrificed and have given so much that we can enjoy today."

Just a day earlier, the city held the grand opening of their first historical museum.
