LAMOINE HONORS TOWNS WAR VETERANS 

LOCAL WORLD WAR TWO VETERAN DELMONT MERRILL WAS THE KEYNOTE SPEAKER AT THE DEDICATION CEREMONY SATURDAY…

BACK IN 20-04, RESIDENTS FORMED A COMMITTEE TO RAISE MONEY FOR AND DESIGN THE MEMORIAL.

IT SITS NEAR THE TOWN HALL…

CONSTRUCTION BEGAN IN EARLY SUMMER, AND THE FINAL BRICKS WERE PUT IN PLACE JUST A FEW DAYS AGO…

THE PROJECT COST TWENTY SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS…

MOST OF THAT WAS RAISED THROUGH DONATIONS AND THE SELLING OF COMMEMORATIVE BRICKS…

COMMITTEE MEMBERS SAY IT’S BEEN A LONG ROAD GETTING HERE…BUT IT WAS WORTH IT.

ACCORDING TO LAMOINE VETERANS COMMITTEE MEMBER KATHLEEN DEFUSCO…

because of all the men and women that have given their lives…and are still giving..to make our country free…the united states of america.

THE COMMITTEE STILL NEEDS TO RAISE ABOUT 12-THOUSAND DOLLARS TO FINISH PAYING FOR THE MEMORIAL…
