We’ve Reached Our Goal!

Enhancements will take place soon.
Check back for an announcement of an unveiling of the memorial around Veterans Day, November 11th.

Renovations to the Livingston County Veterans Memorial are now a “go” after the project’s donation goal of $25,000 was reached. Work will begin soon to enhance the existing memorial by adding improved lighting and six granite stones displaying the badges of the United States military. The hope is to have the improvements completed in the fall so an unveiling event can be held on Veterans Day, November 11th.

Fundraising efforts for the renovation began earlier this year in late February and quickly picked up speed when the group “One Hundred Women Who Care About Livingston County” donated $9,325. Other community donators generously contributed, but the Sally & David Reader Charitable Fund helped push the project past the final goal by donating $9,500. A touching fact; a family member of the Readers who was a casualty of World War II has their name listed on the memorial.

All donations made to the renovation have been deeply appreciated. The project’s partners, the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Livingston County Veteran Services, the City of Howell, Evergreen Outdoors, Livingston County Facility Services, Livingston County Commissioners Jay Drick and Rodger Deaton, and Howell City Council Member Nikolas Hertrich, sincerely thank everyone who contributed.

We look forward to enhancing the memorial to better pay tribute to our local veterans who gave their lives in World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

All funds raised for the enhancement project will be administered solely by the Foundation, which is a 501c3 organization whose mission is to receive and administer funds for educational, cultural, scientific, and charitable purposes and for the public welfare of the Livingston County community.
