Fundraising for a Veterans Memorial at Washington Square Park in Saint Peter has made great progress.
“We’ve raised nearly $190,000 now in the last five months for that memorial. We have a goal of $600,000. We’re about a third of the way there,” says Bob Lambert with the Saint Peter Veterans Memorial Committee. He spoke at Saint Peter’s Veterans Day Ceremony at the Junior / Senior High School.
Lambert sent a message home with students to their parents, and others in the community.
“If we have someone in our family who served in the military, we want to honor them and put them on that wall, where they’ll be remembered for their service. It only costs $200.”
