The Fallen Heroes Memorial Monument Committee is closing in on its goal to raise $130,000 for a monument honoring soldiers killed during World War II and wars that have followed.
Retired U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Kenneth Kelly, co-chairman of the fundraising committee, said the committee has raised $109,000.
"We still need $21,000,' he said. "We are looking to our supportive community to contribute that amount by our tentative dedication day of Veterans Day (Nov. 11).'
