Work continues to raise money for a Veterans Memorial in Decorah

Posted: Tue, Dec 15, 2020 10:12 AM

Local volunteers continue to raise money for a Veterans Memorial in Mary Christopher Park in Decorah.  The Winneshiek County Veterans Memorial Association has been formed as a 501(c)3 organization so it can accept donations.

Local organizers have set a fundraising goal of $250,000 over the next three years.  A proposed wall at the memorial has been removed because of safety considerations.  However, it will cost $50,000 for the base of the memorial alone.

Anyone wishing to donate to the project should visit either Decorah Bank & Trust or Viking State Bank.  Checks should be made out to "Winneshiek County Veterans Memorial Association."

For more information, call the All Vets Club in Decorah at (563) 382-5232.  Checks may also be dropped off at the All Vets Club at 104 State Street in Decorah.
