On behalf of the residents of Townsend, especially all our veterans, the Trustees of Soldiers' Memorials send a huge thank you to Bill Conaway for designing and making the signs for the Gold Star Memorial Room in town hall.

When Bill discovered that we needed signs to identify this special place, he offered to make signs at no cost. He worked with board members to come up with the best design that would be highly visible to everyone passing through that section of town hall while maintaining the 19th century style of the building.

While the room itself was dedicated in June 2013, its existence as a memorial to the 17 soldiers killed in wars has gone unnoticed by the majority of residents entering Town Hall. These signs will now alert visitors to this room and, hopefully, entice them to take a moment to enter the room and view the memorial.
