Jon Dorn spoke to the board during the September 19 meeting of the Kearney County Board of Supervisors. His presentation included an update on the progress of a Kearney County Veterans Memorial to be placed on the courthouse lawn as well as some layout options for the board to consider.
Dorn along with American Legion Post 94 and VFW Post 5537 have been working to raise money to place a veterans memorial for Kearney County residents for some time. Although the fundraising has been slow, Dorn assured the supervisors it would pick up now that he was retired and had more time to devote to the project.
Currently he has a portion of the total cost raised, more funds that were earned during the car show last month, and promises from local producers to donate after harvest. Dorn has also worked to make the project more cost effective by garnering commitments from local contractors to put the monument in when the time comes and to receive cement for the project at cost.
