Edgerton, MO–The Edgerton Community Betterment Committee, with the support of the City of Edgerton, are working on a project to proclaim the City of Edgerton a Purple Heart City. This proclamation is a way for our community to show our appreciation to every man and woman who have served in the United States Armed Forces, and to recognize them for having served their country so selflessly.
This proclamation will be made during a special ceremony at the Veteran’s Memorial on Saturday, September 14, 2019 during the Edgerton Pioneer Days events.
An Edgerton resident who wishes to remain anonymous has donated the amount needed to purchase four “Purple Heart City” road signs from MODOT to be placed on both ends of Z and B Hwys at the City Limits. We appreciate their generosity!
