Mitchel Olszak/NEWS Student volunteers and military personnel were on hand to assist visitors to the Moving Wall memorial, set up at Helling Stadium during the Ellwood City Arts and Crafts Festival over the weekend. The wall is a half-sized replica of the actual Vietnam veterans memorial in Washington, D.C., and lists the names of those killed and missing in action in that war. For more information on the wall, check out the video at ncnewsonline.com.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Moving Wall’s visit to Ellwood City is postponed until next summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The J. Wilbur Randolph American Legion Post 157 made the announcement Thursday. The Moving Wall was to visit Ellwood City this August and instead will come to the borough on Aug. 19-23, 2021. Donations for the wall are still needed. Those wishing to donate can call Ray Venezie at (210) 836-4656.
