A soaring tribute

Tree stump to be transformed into veterans memorial

(Continued)

The tentative date for completion is Memorial Day. The tree, the sculptor and the plan are all in place. The missing ingredient is contributions from the community to achieve the $5,500 goal. A fundraising campaign initiated in December has thus far raised $950.

Plans to involve local Scout troops and start an online Kickstarter campaign are being considered.

Contributions may be sent to Georgetown Bank, 2 E. Main St., Georgetown, MA 01833. Checks should be made payable to the Georgetown Housing Authority Fundraising Account.
