Group works to honor Derby veterans with memorial

July 25, 2011


— A committee of Derby residents wants to build a memorial for veterans from the area.

The committee is raising money for a Derby Area Veterans Memorial-Walk of Freedom in Garrett Park.

Plans call for an entry monument, followed by five stations that will each be dedicated to a branch of the military. It also will include tributes to Derby area residents who have served in the armed services.

The committee is raising funds by selling $100 bricks, which can be purchased up to Aug. 31

The Wichita Eagle reports that memorial's dedication is scheduled for Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
