Honor our fallen heroes

WVCC Memorial Day on Main

Memorial Day is more than just a day off

it's a time to honor the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

We believe that

businesses have the power to make a meaningful impact in their communities.

That's why

the WVCC with The Grateful Nation Project are proud to present Memorial Day on Main, a month-long event dedicated to bringing attention back to our fallen heroes.

Restoring the meaning.

Memorial Day is a time to honor the courageous men and women who sacrificed their lives for our nation.  Gradually, sales, vacations, and other traditions that are meant to celebrate that sacrifice have taken center stage. It's time to reclaim the spirit of Memorial Day and give our fallen heroes the recognition they deserve.
