After a campaign of several years, the Dawson/Lower Tyrone Honor Roll project is rolling into its final phase, that of finalizing and approving all of the veterans names from the Korean, Vietnam and Cold War era and submitting them for casting in the bronze plaque. Although all costs are not met, the committee feels that upcoming fundraisers may cover the final costs. Since the project began several years ago, material costs have increased drastically. Hopefully, a dedication in spring or early summer will still be possible.
The Honor Roll Committee is selling a ticket to help raise funds. The tickets are $2 each and have both a winning amount and a bonus. Tickets are available at the following locations: Sweet Peas (Vanderbilt), Tri-Town Market, Bucks Dairy Store, John Prah's Barber shop (South Connellsville) or from any committee member. The committee is planning a program booklet that will accompany the dedication celebration of the new honor roll. Commercial or personal ads are available in the booklet, from 1⁄8 page to full-page ads. Ad space is available from any committee member. You may also honor or remember a loved one with a personal line or block space. Information is available from any committee member or by phoning 724-529-7298.
That's it for this week, friends.
