The Salina Veteran’s Memorial started as a vision to pay tribute to the veterans who served our country from Salina. That vision then became a drawing and then the work really began.
The first thing that had to be done was to make a place for the memorial. It all started when volunteers gathered to clear the space by removing the sod from the park.
As the work progressed, many volunteers put in a lot of hours readying the ground, building foundations, designing monuments, etc. As the frame for the monument cast was made, children from the local schools were able to help in creating the clay model.
There have been a lot of hands that have gone into this project. To find out how you can help with this project, please contact the Salina Lion’s Club.
