In honor of ten years of service in the Wilson County community, First Freedom Bank is spotlighting ten worthy community service organizations, and donating in support of their efforts. In May, First Freedom donated $1,000 in support of the Wilson County Veterans Plaza. Located next to the Wilson County Courthouse, the Veterans Plaza is a tribute to those who served the United States both past and present. Phase One of the Veteran's Park was completed in 2014; the park includes an eternal flame, POW-MIA monument, a star-shaped fountain, monuments for all branches of the military and several flagpoles. Phases two and three will include offices and a museum.
