Jim Brown Veterans Memorial Opening

After almost six years of planning, fundraising and hard work, the fall sun finally shone down on the Eldora Veterans Memorial dedication ceremony Saturday morning.

The $140,000 memorial features five granite slab plaques inscribed with almost 1,500 names of Eldora men and women who served in the military. Each branch is represented separately on its own slab and the flag of each branch also flies above the memorial.
