Seneca Falls could become a Purple Heart town tonight.
The Town Board may vote to accept that designation after the community, led by Generations Bank CEO Menzo Case, dedicated a Purple Heart trail Aug. 20 in front of the bank’s 20 E. Bayard St. headquarters.
The trail honors military veterans who have received a Purple Heart for being wounded or killed in combat. The nation’s oldest military award dates to George Washington, our country’s first president
The landscaped trail has the names of nearly 30 Purple Heart recipients engraved on pavers dotting the trail.
