The Effingham County Veteran’s Memorial Committee and local veterans will hold a fund drive around town on Saturday, September 24th. Effingham Mayor Jeff Bloemker met with several local veterans to discuss the drive.
“It has been a great thing to witness veteran’s memorials popping up in all the cities, towns, and villages around the country,” Said Mayor Bloemker. “These memorials are an important means of remembering those who have maintained our American freedom via military service. And they also serve as interesting historical markers. THANK YOU to the Effingham American Legion for raising funds to maintain the very impressive and moving Effingham County Veteran’s Memorial.”
Please be aware of the collectors on Friday the 24th as they will be on street corners and intersections that day.
