REPUBLIC TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) - Dozens gathered around the newly installed Veterans Memorial in Republic Township on Friday.
Organizers holding the event as a 'thank you' to those who supported the project, both financially and in spirit.
"I never really had the chance to thank all the donors and the people who supported this, so this is kind of like an appreciation day to give thanks to those who donated and made this possible," says organizer Sterling Schultz.
The memorial was finished earlier this summer, and was made possible by donations from supporters.
It contains names of the men and women in Republic Township that have served this country, and still walk among us.
The Veterans Memorial is right in Republic Township, on the corner of Republic Avenue and County Highway LLK.
