My Town Belding: WWI monument closer to reality

BELDING, Mich.—Visitors to the Belding Veterans Park now have a place to sit. 

Project leader Denny Craycraft says the park now has six benches.  Two of those benches were donated by Belding Tank, which also made a sizable donation toward bricks for the WWI monument.  Lake Design and Gerref Industries also donate to the effort.

Craycraft, who is a Vietnam veteran, has been working on adding park memorials for local veterans of every war since July 2010.  The World War I monument will feature the names of 135 area veterans who served in the war.  It will be the fourth monument installed at the park.  The most recent addition was a Korean War Monument, which was dedicated on Veterans Day, last November.

For more information or to donate, call Craycraft at (616) 550-6990.
