LEWISTON – Two new polished granite benches were unveiled recently at Veterans Memorial Park, Main Street, in honor of Sgt. Dan Cunningham and SFC Shawn Dostie. The seats were unveiled by members of the Cunningham and Dostie families. The park now has six benches.

At the present time the L and A Veterans Council is seeking more names to be added to an 11th memorial stone, which they hope to unveil on Memorial Day weekend, said Chairman Bert Dutil.

Anyone who has been or who is presently in the military can have their name on a stone. The cost is $30 a name. Dutil said those interested may call or write for an application and must be able to prove they were in the military by sending with the application a copy of the discharge papers or a DD210.

While the cost for a bench is $2,000, the cost for a name is $200. Dutil said anyone can have their name placed on a bench for that amount.

The treasurer also has gift cards available. For more information, contact Gerry Cain at 782-6621 or Dutil at 786-2305.
