F&M Trust Pledges Support For Mercersburg Area Veterans Memorial Project
F&M Trust has recently pledged $5,000 to the Mercersburg American Legion for its Mercersburg Area Veterans Memorial Project.
The project began a few years ago as an idea from officers and members of the Harry Lackhove American Legion Post 517. Since then, a committee was formed and the work to turn the idea into reality began. Efforts to fund the project included several fundraising projects and a request to community supporters for monetary donations. F&M Trust welcomed the opportunity to provide support for this project.
Fulton County residents Dale “Cookie” Brown and his brother, Martin Brown of Hustontown, were instrumental in the fundraising efforts for this project.
The memorial is designed to recognize all veterans who have served in our armed forces: Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard. A formal dedication of The Mercersburg Area Veterans Memorial is planned for the 11th hour on November 11, 2013.
