The Chester Public Library will display the 99th Assembly District Veterans Traveling Wall of Honor for the next several weeks.

The Traveling Wall of Honor pays tribute to 17 local veterans who are inductees of the inaugural 99th Assembly District Veterans Hall of Fame. The wall was constructed by Carpenters Local 279 and Laborers Local 17.

“Heroes live amongst us,” Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt said in the press release announcing the wall’s arrival in Chester. “They are our neighbors and folks we see on a daily basis. The Traveling Wall of Honor is a way to pay tribute to these local military heroes who have served and contributed in amazing ways — they greatly deserve recognition.”

For those interested in viewing the Wall of Honor, they can visit the Chester Public Library at 1784 Kings Highway.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, you are requested to make an appointment by calling 845-469-4252.

“All are welcome,” said Library Director Maureen Jagos. “You need not be a Chester resident.”
