LEWISTON – The L and A Veterans Council has a project under way to have benches placed in the Veterans Memorial Park.

The benches are made of polished granite and would carry the name of individuals or businesses on the front. The cost is $200 a name, up to 22 characters including spaces. People do not have to be a veteran or military personnel to have a name on the benches.

The council is also continuing to accept names for the stones for anyone who has been in the military or is in the military. The cost is $30 each. The ninth stone will be dedicated at a ceremony after the parade on Memorial Day.

The council is accepting donations to continue adding to the park, such as military hardware, in the future.

Anyone interested can contact Chairman Bert Dutil at 786-2305, Treasurer Gerry Cain at 782-6621 or Vice Chairman Armand Bussiere at 688-2291.
