Letter to the editor: Funding needed to finish veterans’ memorial

To the editor,

The Farmington Area Veterans Memorial Committee has received some very good news. A local organization, Support Our Troops Haunted House, has pledged $10,000 to our memorial project if we can match it with donations from others. This is an opportunity for businesses and individuals to give and have their gift matched by this generous offer.

This organization raises funds by their hard work in operating the haunted house at the Dakota County Fairgrounds each Halloween. Please send donations of any amount to Farmington Area Veterans Memorial, P.O. Box 61, Farmington, MN 55024. Your donation is income tax deductible and will be very helpful to our continued construction plans this summer.
