If each family who had a veteran resting in Oak Hill Cemetery would contribute $10 or $15 dollars, the Veterans' Memorial could be replaced.
Currently, one side has come apart from the structure and the mortar in the rest of the memorial is deteriorating.
Our veterans deserve a new memorial and a lot more that we can never repay. Replacing this monument is a small way to show our respect and appreciation for all they have given.
The Veterans Memorial at Oak Hill Cemetery in Tama is in need of replacement. The50-year old memorial was originally built by the Tama American Legion and Tama-Toledo Veterans of Foreign Wars posts. The Oak Hill Cemetery Association has launched a fund drive to pay o build a replacement.
Give your donations to Judy Welch at the Tama Civic Center.
The money will be placed in a special fund for memorial replacement.
The goal is to have the new monument ready for Memorial Day, so that it can stand proudly with the Avenue of Flags. Donate now in order to meet this goal.
