Veteran's Memorial in the Works

It's official ... we have a Veteran's Memorial in the works at Dycusburg! The cost, however, will need to be offset by donations.

The marker will be a very nice stone, measuring 2'4" wide, 3' tall and approx. 10" thick. We're nailing down a location for the marker to be set. The inscription will be similar to the following:

"In honor of Veterans from the Dycusburg area who served our country in war and peace, to protect and preserve our heritage. A nation conceived in liberty and justice. May we never forget the sacrifices they made. Dedicated July 4, 2008."
