Reliance dedicates Memorial

Posted by Nicole


The Reliance Area Community Club (RACD) in conjunction with the Johnson-Petersen Post #179 dedicated the Veterans Memorial at the Reliance Cemetery before the regular Memorial Day service Monday, May 29. Mayor Ronald ‘Red’ McManus represented the town and also the RACD.


Sister Elaine Tworek gave the opening invocation.
After the prayer, Red thanked the community for their overall support. The RACD started the cemetery project in March of 2004 by sending out 600 letters requesting donations from people with connections to the area. Over 300 people responded with donations. The goal was to earn $20,000-$25,000. "Donations nearly doubled that amount," stated Red, which made it possible to complete the entire project in a short period of time.


The project included building a Veterans Memorial consisting of seven pedestals with plaques listing the seven Reliance area servicemen who lost their lives in time of service to the country. The plaques display the serviceman’s name, rank, and date of death. The memorial also includes a stone with a list of all veterans who are buried in the Reliance Cemetery.
 

A gazebo was built which protects a plot map of the cemetery from the weather.


Commander Charlie Kentch gave a dedication and Chaplain Wayne Monson gave a final prayer.


The dedication concluded with Kristen Sundall playing taps.
