A memorial, which local veterans describe as a quiet place for remembering and honoring veterans, got an important first demonstration of support with the gift of $800 from Charlotte Shelburne Rotary. The gift helped to pay for the design of the memorial which is planned for construction at the east end of the Shelburne’s Parade Ground.

Mike Lynch, who is leading the campaign for the memorial with Sam Feitelberg, Arthur Kunin and Colleen Haag, said the plan is for a modest memorial with walkways and benches. Total cost for the project is estimated to be $80,000, and the committee hopes to raise $100,000 to ensure ongoing maintenance.
