SPEARFISH, S.D. – The Spearfish Veterans Monument Organization hosted a pancake feed on Sunday to lift cash for a monument that’s just below midway full.
Five granite constructions will make up the piece, bearing the names of veterans who served in battle way back to the Spanish-American War.
Residents fascinated by having their title or a member of the family’s title inscribed should qualify by assembly sure standards — similar to having been a Spearfish resident for not less than one yr.
“Most all of us which can be on the committee are from round right here initially. So it’s a part of our heritage, and Spearfish is a superb neighborhood to develop up in,” Committee Treasurer Doug Henwood stated. “It is a superb neighborhood to have household in and we simply wished to indicate appreciation to the veterans which have all served right here.”
Other fundraisers for the monument embrace occasions similar to chili feeds and raffles.
