St. Marys veterans' monuments dedicated

June 18, 2012

Photos by Victoria Stanish - On Saturday, two monuments dedicated to the St. Marys veterans buried in the St. Mary's Catholic and Protestant cemeteries were dedicated. The project was spearheaded by the St. Marys Servicemen's Burial Detail and received great support from the community.

After more than a year of fundraising, planning and work, members of the St. Marys Servicemen's Burial Detail saw their vision realized during the dedication of veterans' monuments at the St. Mary's Catholic and Protestant cemeteries Saturday afternoon.
The idea for the monuments honoring the veterans laid to rest in the community's cemeteries was first discussed by detail members in March 2011, and they promptly got the ball rolling with outreach and fundraising efforts.
