New London Veterans Memorial
Broome-Wood Post 292 New London American Legion voted and approved to open a Veterans Memorial Fund for the purposes of building a new memorial to honor any and all Vetrans that paid the ultimate sacrafice while fighting in any of the Wars and also any first responders, Police, Fire & Rescue and EMS who lost their life while on duty will be honored. This memorial will include veterans from New London and the townships of New London, Clarksfield, Fitchville, Rochester and Ruggles.
With a fund raiser event and the sales of paver bricks the Memorial committee hoped to raise at least $15000.00, which would allow us to build a lasting monument around the existing Cival War Statue just south of the library that would forevermore stand tall so that we may never forget the men and women whom laid down their lives defending our great nation!
After raising the needed monies for the project it was started and with the many gracious donations of materials, equipment and many hours of labor from community members that took valuable time from their own jobs and the time put in by the architect that made up the design and was the project advisor. At first it did not look like much but after it was completed it is a beauty to behold and a beautifull place to honor the fallen. Hats off, BIG salute and THANK YOU ALL for your support and hard work in this project
