A dream that started at the 2010 Fillmore Alumni Banquet became a reality Monday May 26th, 2014 when the Fillmore Veterans Memorial was unveiled on a sun-drenched Memorial Day.
Dozens of Fillmore area residents and others with ties to the community were on hand as a memorial bearing the names of some 350 veterans of World Wars I and II and the Korean and Vietnam War eras was unveiled at the northwest corner of the school building by committee members Steve Cash and Jim Woods.
“We began with a list of 174 names, and there are about 350 out there on that memorial now,” Cash said, noting the first public mention of the memorial was a July 5, 2011 Banner Graphic story that prompted a response from a Vermont company, Picture This on Granite, that ultimately created the memorial. It even offered a sample.
“Once we saw that sample,” Cash said, “there was no turning back.”
The engraved granite memorial alone was a $6,300 project and the committee was able to raise more than $9,000 to cover the purchase, delivery and the installation.
