Letter to the editor: Farmington memorial work resumes soon

To the editor,

We plan to resume construction and installation activities within the Farmington Area Veterans Memorial in May.

Items for 2014 installation include the veteran pavers to recognize area veterans. We have sold 216 pavers and have space for an additional 12 spaces for this phase. If you have a veteran in your family that you would like to honor, I urge you to make the purchase soon. 208 of them have been engraved and are in storage at Dakota Electric in Farmington. We will be picking up the remainder at the end of April so we need the names, etc. soon so as to have them ready for spring installation.

Forms are available with our display in the city hall lobby or if you call me (651-463-8739) or leon.orr@charter.net, I will get one to you. The pavers are a piece of granite eight inches by 20 inches and two inches thick and the cost is $350 each.

Leon Orr,

Farmington
