ANDOVER — Volunteers and members of the Andover Tourism Council are planning fundraisers to help cover unexpected costs associated with the recently dedicated Aisle of Flags in the village's Lake Park.|
A Veteran's Sunset Ceremony on Nov. 10 will both raise additional funds and create an awareness of the significance of Veterans Day to the younger generation, according to Elma (Mooch) Gay, a member of the Tourism Council.
The Sunset Ceremony, beginning at 3:30 p.m. will include a ceremony at the Aisle of Flags, refreshments and writing letters and creating Christmas cards for service members overseas.
Mrs. Gay said more than $23,000 has been raised to construct the new block-long sidewalk in front of the Veterans' Memorial Garden on the south side of Andover Lake Park, to install permanent pole holders and to purchase 100 poles and flags for the initial phase of the Aisle of Flags.
She said the money to be raised will go toward completing the landscaping and to install flags that have been purchased since the dedication.
Donations to the project can be mailed to: Monument Fund / Aisle of Flags, PO Box 105, Andover, IL 61233.
