City employees have begun installing chains at the memorial.



• City employees have begun installing chains at the memorial.

• These link between 60 and 65 of the corner posts installed in April.

• 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.
