Bellingham will get its visit Aug. 22-25, 2019

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"A three-quarter scale replica of the huge and iconic national Vietnam Veterans Memorial will roll into town next August. 
“I’ve been wanting to do this for 20 years,” said Jim Hastings, who filed the application for the visit. 
The wall replica, managed and maintained by the same organization behind the original – the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund – stops in about 30 communities throughout the country each year. 
It’s called The Wall that Heals, and has been to more than 600 communities since its unveiling in 1996. The first version was built to half-scale of its Washington, D.C., counterpart, but the current model is 375 feet long, and 7.5 feet tall at its highest point."
