Plans are still on track to have the new Delaware County Veterans Memorial completed next spring.
Manchester veteran Dr. John Tyrrell is helping lead the effort, and he says work on the project is moving along well.
The new Veterans Memorial will be located in Manchester at the southeast corner of Baum Park and it will be visible from the road that leads out to the fairgrounds. It will be designed as a place to sit and reflect, with names of local veterans included in the memorial. A groundbreaking ceremony was held in May and Tyrrell says there has been a lot of interest in the project since that time.
Tyrrell says they hope to have the new Veterans Memorial finished by Memorial Day 2017.
