Light Lawrenceville Purple for Purple Heart Week

Friday, August 6, 2021

The City of Lawrenceville encourages its citizens to Light Lawrenceville Purple, August 6 - 9, 2021, in honor of National Purple Heart Day. Purple Heart Day commemorates the creation of the oldest American military decoration for military merit. The Purple Heart honors the men and women who are of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. On August 24, 2020, the City of Lawrenceville was declared a Purple Heart City by Mayor David Still. The purpose of being a Purple Heart City is to express gratitude to the sons and daughters of our community who were either wounded or killed in combat defending the freedoms enjoyed by all Americans. Find out more about Lawrenceville's Purple Heart declaration here: The purple light bulbs are available for purchase online or at your local hardware store.
