Veteran's Project Fund Raiser

The Lindley Town Board and Heritage Days Committtee have announced plans to to raise funds to purchase a granite marker to display a plaque which reads" To Honor Those of our Town -Living and Dead who served our Country".

The plaque was purchased by the Lindley Town Board in 1960 and was mounted in the base of the flag pole at the former Town Hall until 1972 when the town offices were moved to the present location. The plaque has been in storage for a number of years and needs to be refinished and mounted on a permanent marker.

The organizations felt that the public should be invited to participate in the project. The plaque and marker would be placed near the flag pole of the Town Hall. Lindley residents are proud of their Heritage and would like to honor the people who have served their country beginning with the Revolutionary War Soldiers buried in the cemeteries.

Donations can be sent to Heritage Days at Box 62 Lindley,New York14858 Attn: Diana Hill. until May 15th. Checks should specify Veteran's Project. For more information, contact Diana Hill at 523-8816 or Catherine Pierce at 523-8851. A rededication ceremony will be planned for a later date.
