The Town of Conway elected to purchase the tract of land adjacent to the town hall with the plans to honor our servicemen and women with a memorial. Like most Americans we are very proud of those that have fought to provide the freedoms we enjoy every day and want to also honor those that are currently putting their lives on the line to keep us free and safe.
