The committee for the Vietnam / Korea War Memorial to be erected in Dawson is currently putting together a dedication book to be sold to help raise funds to pay for the new memorial. It is hoped area businesses and supporters will help put together a fantastic dedication booklet to accompany a celebration of the monument's installation, which will be held on Aug. 31. Advertising space is being sold at this time by members of the committee. Ads are available for sponsor or memorial lines to 1⁄4-, 1⁄2- and full-page ads. Information about the program book is available from any committee member or by calling 724-529-7298 or 724-529-2368. Donations are still being accepted to help finish this project.
