The Granby Veterans Memorial committee held its first meeting in September of 2012 with the goal of coming up with a plan to create a fitting Veterans Memorial to honor the residents of Granby, Massachusetts who have served their country in time of war. Four bronze plaques and two marble plaques adorned with the names of Granby veterans from the Civil War to the Vietnam War used to line the halls of Kellogg Hall. They were taken down after the town hall offices moved out of Kellogg Hall and placed in storage at the public safety center. Granby veterans that have served in the Gulf War, Iraq and Afghanistan have not been recognized and new bronze plaques will be created to honor their service.
