An effort led by Sterling District Supervisor Koran Saines to raise money needed to restore the Veteran’s Memorial on Sterling Boulevard is gaining support.
Saines launched a GoFundMe page campaign in early February, with the stated goal of raising $4,000 to clean and seal the memorial’s five marble monuments.
“Our Veterans have given the ultimate service, and some regrettably the ultimate sacrifice, to our community. Please consider donating to this effort to restore a memorial in their honor, and let’s show our Veterans that Sterling stands with them. Any amount helps, and no donation is too small. I appreciate you taking the time to consider this request, and hope you will join me,” Saines wrote in the original solicitation.
That goal was surpassed with in just a few weeks, allowing Saines and members of American Legion Post 150 to consider more substantial repairs and renovation of the quiet pocket park.
