    • Fund raising for the Memorial has been in progress several years with a goal of $330,000.
    • The city of Shawnee committed $50,000 to that goal.
    • Included in the memorial will be 10 granite pillars including the names of all the men and women in Oklahoma who have made the ultimate sacri­fice and given their lives through all of the wars.
    • Gray granite pavers, which can be purchased by anyone, are what the committee is attempting to sell to help raise the funds and meet the goal.
    • The pavers are $65, $100 and $250, depending on what size a person or family chooses to buy.
    • Contact Tom Schrzan, 273-9270, for more information.
