Larry Garrison of Centralia recently presented a $1,000 check to support the Veterans Tribute Project, located on the main campus of Kaskaskia College. Jim Beasley, Co-Chair of the Tribute Committee, accepted the check on behalf of Garrison. “On behalf of the Veterans Tribute Committee I want to thank Larry for his wonderful gift to the project,” said Beasley. “Larry’s gift will assist greatly in phase 2 of the Tribute, which we hope to get underway this fall.”
Phase 2 of the Veterans Tribute project will entail the construction of three additional walls which will contain over 37,000 names. The Tribute Committee is also encouraging the public to assist in providing the names and branches of service of area veterans to ensure no one is missed as they begin plans for future phases of the project.
