Veterans Memorial Project Funding Update
Despite COVID-19 set backs, the East Longmeadow Veterans Memorial project is still moving forward. The committee has started to secure materials including flags and flag poles, pavers, and an electric system to light the memorial. The project was originally expected to cost between $250,000 – $300,000. With $192,000 already secured, the committee has announced that they’ll need another $325,000 before breaking ground.
While the in-person fundraising events have been halted, the committee has been fortunate to receive some large corporate donations. In addition to the recent $10,000 donation from Monson Savings Bank, Big Y and Westfield Bank have also signed on. If you would like to donate, the committee has launched a Go Fund Me Campaign. Donations and checks can also be sent to:
