Press Release

Veterans Memorial Brick Dedication Ceremony to be held June 13, 2014

The Dunn County Veterans Memorial Committee of Main Street of Menomonie, Inc. and the Community Foundation of Dunn County invite area residents to the 14th annual dedication of new bricks at the Dunn County Veterans Memorial at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 13, 2014. The Veterans Memorial is located at the intersection of the Historic Second Street Corridor and Crescent Street in downtown Menomonie.

Retired CDR David Grambo, United States Navy, will be this year’s guest speaker.

This annual program began on Flag Day, June 14, 2000 when the monument was unveiled and over 300 bricks were dedicated.   The Veterans Memorial was created as Dunn County’s way of honoring men and women who had served their country in the military.  The veterans honored are not required to be from Dunn County.  Service during war time is also not a requirement.  This year, 17 veterans will be honored, making a total of 608 bricks at the Memorial.

The Dunn County Veterans Memorial Committee of Main Street of Menomonie, Inc. is responsible for the Memorial and programs relating to it. The Community Foundation of Dunn County coordinates the brick program and also manages the Dunn County Veterans Memorial Endowment Fund.

For more information about purchasing bricks or making a donation to the endowment fund, contact the Community Foundation of Dunn County (715) 232-8019, 500 Main Street, Suite 322, PO Box 498, Menomonie, WI 54751.  Additional information regarding veterans of Dunn County may be obtained at the Veterans Affairs Office, 800 Wilson Avenue in Menomonie. For details about this year’s program contact Main Street of Menomonie (715) 235-2666 or visit www.mainstreetmenomonie.org.

Immediately following the Flag Day Ceremonies, a Flag Retirement Ceremony will be held at Menomonie Veterans Center at E4710 County Road BB Menomonie, WI. Everyone is invited to attend this patriotic flag burning for flags that have become faded and worn and must be honorably retired from life.
