The Westerly Veterans Memorial Committee is pleased to announce that the phase 4 plans are well underway for the installation of five 4-foot solid granite benches needed to protect the memorial from any further damage from motor vehicles.
We hope to have the benches installed by the Fourth of July, but the official dedication ceremony will take place on Nov. 11, 2018, which will be 100 years from the end of World War I, which ended on Nov. 11, 1918.
Donations, large or small, are needed to complete this large project. A check made out to the “Westerly Veterans Memorial Committee” and mailed to Ed Liguori, 33 Ann St., Westerly, RI 02891, would be helpful.
Remember: “The names of the several thousand men and women listed on the Plaques served our country to protect us and keep us free. Now is our turn to protect them.”
