Another great project for Andalusia in the works

Ground broken for new Veteran's Memorial Park

"This memorial, once it's built, it's going to define the people of Covington County as appreciative, caring and honoring the veterans from this area who served," said Kenneth Johnson, chairman of the ad hoc committee in charge of the park and the veterans' monument. "This is going to make a statement."
Johnson said construction has already begun on the project.
"They're already working on the obelisk," he said. "Our goal is Veteran's Day. November 11 will be the formal dedication."
(...) Cornerstones for the monument are also available. Made of dark granite, they are 8x8 inches and can be inscribed with up to 8 lines each. Corporations, civic groups, organizations or businesses or individuals can purchase them for $1,500. Forms to order the bricks or cornerstones were sent out through the City of Andalusia utility bills recently.

It's great to see things coming together this way. Andalusia is catching up to other counties in many ways. Almost all counties around have impressive, very visible veterans ' monuments, and now Andalusia will have one, too.
