The memorial will be located adjacent to the Greene County Historical Society and Greene County Tennis Courts, at the intersection of Rolling Meadows Road and Garards Fort Road, in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania.
Dedication ceremony, November 11, 2018.
A flowering dogwood tree will be planted along the access sidewalk to remember each of the 58 fallen soldiers. At each tree will be a solar powered garden lantern displaying a Memory Medallion that will share the picture and life profile information of each soldier, as well as the identity of contributors to the project.
The estimated cost of this project is $30,000.00. This breaks down to be approximately $500.00 per honored soldier. Donations are processed through the Greene County Legacy Association, a non-profit organization established for the completion of this community project.
Rendering of the feature monument to be located at the end of the tree lined path. Upon it is a laser-etched image of one of our fallen soldiers, Francis Benton Moore, and an updated, alphabetical list of the 58 local heroes who gave their lives during World War I.
