Highland Veterans Memorial

The Highland Veterans Memorial on the east side of the city is being expanded. Kiosks will be added for others killed in action.

The project is being spearheaded by the Highland American Legion Post, the Highland VFW Post and the City of Highland.

Jim Hobbs, American Legion commander, said the monument will be placed at the south end of Rinderer Park.

Forms to purchase pavers are available at the Highland American Legion and VFW, the library in Highland, the Highland Chamber of Commerce, and Highland City Hall. A small paver costs $100 and an 8 by 12-inch paver costs $300.

The kiosk and paver dedication is scheduled for Memorial Day this year.

The paver program will be ongoing so they can be added in future years, but Hobbs noted that those obtained now can be part of the upcoming dedication ceremony.
