'Live From the Newsroom visits the Delco Veterans Memorial

Tonight we have a very special post-Memorial Day edition of our live-stream Internet broadcast, 'Live From the Newsroom.'

We'll be on the road again, paying a visit to one of the best, most meaningful attractions in Delaware County. We'll be out on Route 3 in Newtown Square at the sparkling new Delaware County Veterans Memorial.

I can't think of a better place to be just two days after celebrating Memorial Day.

We'll be joined by several very special guests who will update us on the progress of the memorial just one year after its grand opening.

Among those on hand will be Guy Fizzano, who heads the Delaware County Veterans Memorial Association, the driving force behind the memorial. Fizzano will give us an update on the memorial's first year, and also tell us about a very special appointment to the board, as well as the push to sell 11x12 bricks to help bankroll some of the costs connected to the memorial.

Find out who this special new member of the honorary board will be. Here's a hint. Think former governors.

Linda Houldin, longtime Newtown supervisor, will bring us up to date on a new education initiative the board is putting into place.

Springfield Police Chief Joe Daly will detail the annual gala dinner set for November, which will feature the Freedom Awards.

We also will meet this year’s winner of the Freedom Award recipients. Ralph Galati, a former POW, served 7 years with Sen. John McCain.

The Freedom Award is a very special honor that is part of the annual gala that helps pay for the upkeep of the memorial, which is open and lighted 24 hours a day at its location along West Chester Pike as you head west out of Newtown Square. Please tune in for this very special show tonight at 7 on DelcoTimes.com. If you have a question you'd like to see our panel address, email it to me at editor@delcotimes.com.

Most important, make sure you visit this stunningly beautiful structure. Why not join us at the site for our live show tonight?

See you at 7.
