NL memorial taking shape
The New London Veteran Memorial Park is taking shape. The large monument has been set by Boecker’s Masonry.
There will be more monuments to come; the tablets that will hold the names, two benches, the Fallen Solider and the two soldiers at the entrance.
All of the monuments will come from the quarry in Ely, Minn. Each will be set as they are completed.
The sign is from Mesabi Black Granite and the pads are Sunset Red.
Three flags will be behind the big sign to be flown with extra places for flags on special events. There will be lighting as well.
As of now, the memorial will not be finished by Veterans Day, but it is hoped to be done shortly thereafter.
