Our Inaugural Fund Raising Project
The Friends of Mississippi Veterans raises funds to benefit veterans through individual and corporate donations. A fund-raising campaign was initiated to fund the needs of the State Veteran Memorial Cemeteries not covered by grant dollars, such as a carillon, signage, and other substantial elements.
The carillon/bell tower, pictured here, serves as a central feature of the cemeteries and was the inaugural fund-raising project of the Friends of Mississippi Veterans. In conjunction with military funerals and other events, music (including "Taps") can be heard throughout the rolling terrain of the Newton and Kilmichael cemeteries and beyond, and is symbolic of the commitment we all have to our veterans..
