(LAGRANGE) – Maintaining the grave sites of LaGrange County’s veterans is a never-ending job.

Jean McKibben leads a five person crew that tackles that job.

She told the LaGrange Town Board during a recent meeting that the Veterans Headstone Project has replaced 56 memorials in Greenwood Cemetery alone. Seven of those were replaced in the last year.

72 new flag holders were installed of the 95 World War I veterans buried at Greenwood.

McKibben says their plans for 2020 are just as ambitious. ...... {LISTEN}.

The Town of LaGrange will again contribute $1,000 to the project, bringing its total donations to $6,500.
