Two high school students designed T-shirts to promote the upcoming Moving Wall in Almont, MI sponsored by Chapter 287.
The local American Legion and Chapter 287 awarded cash prizes to a senior and a sophomore who created the T-shirt designs as part of an art class project.
The students’ shirts will sell for $20 through the American Legion and a local business. Proceeds from the T-Shirt fundraiser will go to the cost of The Moving Wall delivery and installation. The cost of hosting The Moving Wall and other expenses total over $5,000.
Chapter members hope that the promotion and sales of the T-shirts will bring out both spectators, as well as volunteers for the care of the Wall. Volunteers will help people find names on the Wall, keep watch around the clock for public viewing and security of the Wall, and they will receive food and drinks during their shifts.
This will be the fourth time The Moving Wall will have visited this region of Michigan.
The Moving Wall will be in Almont in early July.
