The DWI Victims Memorial, the first of its kind in the state, was dedicated September 8, 2000, the day a Troy teen Allison Bodnar would have turned 19. The Memorial is located at the scene were the popular Troy teen was struck by a drunk driver. Each year during crime victims week in April, a memorial dedication ceremony is held to honor those individuals whose names appear on the memorial, and also dedicate any new names to be placed on the memorial.
We laughed and smiled about our fondest moments. We cried a thousand tears. Your memories and love will live on forever. You will remain in our hearts and our dreams. Let this memorial serve as a reminder of the dangers of drinking and driving.
