Citizens from the community and people from other communities and other states are making contributions to the Veterans' Memorial Replacement Fund. Hopefully, the $4,000 goal will be reached soon allowing time for construction of the new monument so it will be completed before Memorial Day.
City workers are also making an important contribution. In order to save on cost, they have volunteered to tear down the current memorial so the site will be ready for the replacement.
If you have a veteran resting in Oak Hill Cemetery, we would encourage you to honor your veteran by making a donation. Large or small, any donation puts the fund closer to the goal.
