A little more than two months after the ceremonious groundbreaking for the Seneca Area Veterans Memorial, which took place Aug. 14, the organizing committee has erected a sign revealing the design at the future memorial site, across from Greener’s Corner in Seneca. The hope is that the sign, visible in the heart of Seneca, will give community members and passers-by an idea of how the memorial will look, a running tally of funds raised toward the goal of $150,000, and how people can become a part of the project.
All County Signs (the Showen family) donated the sign for the site.
Working with Krause Monument Company, of Viroqua, to design the veterans memorial, the Seneca Area Veterans Committee consists of Chairman Bob Ostrander, Tom Olson, Larry Kelley, Cliff Tollefson, John Swanson, Carol Crusan and the late Jerry Johnson (honorary chairman 1944-2014). Johnson is the one who spearheaded the memorial project.
