Letter to the editor: Dedication set for memorial

To the editor,

The official dedication of the Farmington Area Veterans Memorial will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 7. We are currently working on various activities for this event so please watch for news releases and letters in this newspaper as our plans progress.

Mark that time and date on your calendar. We are planning a great ceremony; one that is respectful to all military veterans with emphasis on those Farmington area veterans who lost their lives in wartime operations.

Persons who have purchased pavers should go to and click on the “VETERAN PAVERS” tab and check the paver list for accuracy. You can also get an update on dedication plans by clicking on the “NEWS” tab.

Leon Orr,


Leon Orr is chairman of the Farmington Area Veterans Memorial Committee
