Veterans’ memorial under way

To the Editor:
Over a year ago, a committee was formed with representatives from the Glencoe American Legion and the Glencoe Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) to determine if there was enough support to create a veterans memorial in Glencoe.
We received approval in May from the city to create a Glencoe Area Veterans Memorial on the northwest section of the City Center grounds.
It is our intent to honor all veterans from the Glencoe community. This memorial is for all veterans, alive and deceased. We are welcoming anyone who has lived in our community and who has served our nation to be recognized. Friends or family members may submit an order form to honor a veteran associated with our community.  The cost for each veteran’s name and information that will be recognized on one of the monuments is $200.
We are off to a good start in sales for the memorial. Our plan is to install the first monuments, flag pole and sidewalk area before Memorial Day 2015. If you want your name listed on one of the first two monuments, don’t delay in responding. The first 96 names will be gathered prior to Nov. 1.
For more information, please contact one of our committee members or stop by the VFW and view our display and a sample of the granite that will be used. Committee members are: Dale Peters, 320-864-3282; Jerry Scharpe, 320-864-5380; Larry Gutknecht, 320-864-5392; Jim Entinger, 920-328-7512; and James Peters, 507-479-0389.
