More work on veterans' monuments

May 2, 2012

After doing extensive work at the Protestant Cemetery over the past few weeks, Don "Flip" Bobenrieth of St. Marys Monuments and Bill Schatz of Schatz's Lawn and Wall Installation and their crews headed over the the St. Mary's Catholic cemetery to install the second of the two monuments that will honor area veterans.
Work includes digging footers, pouring concrete, building a decorative and functional retaining wall, and completing the landscaping around each site. The St. Marys Servicemen's Burial Detail has spearheaded the fundraising efforts for the monuments and the community has been very generous in their donations. A tentative dedication for the monuments is planned for Armed Forces Day in mid-May.
