The original fountain was dedicated over 20 years ago in honor and memory of the Carterville teachers and family that were killed in a tragic vehicle accident. Since that time, the fountain has experienced failures and had to be removed.
However, through contributions from the Mayor Mausey Carterville Enhancement Fund and personal donations, a new fountain has been purchased and installed.
The rededication of this new fountain will be held at the Cannon Park Shelter on November 1, 2014 at 10:00 a.m.
