Walnut Communications hands a check of $250 to Beth Kennedy towards the Underwood Veterans Monument, "Liberty By Honor".
The proposed monument will be place on the north side of UMBA Hall in Underwood, Iowa with the tentative date of installation on Veterans Day of 2007. Walnut Communications has been a great help in assuring that this project gets the welcome support that it needs to accomplish such a thankful task. It has donated $250 to each town of Underwood, Neola, and Minden. They have pledged another $250 to the same three towns in the year 2008 for flowers or needed extras. Walnut Communications also had a beautiful float in red, white, and blue at the Underwood parade that carried Veterans from all three towns and committee members. They have also offered volunteers, if available, for any event that will be a fund raiser for the Veterans monuments. They have definitely put their salute on this project and all three committees have been very thankful for their caring support.
It takes a lot of people to build something that will last for many life times....
what they build will go beyond themselves and touch a nation starting with a town,
reaching out to a county and spreading to a nation.
