An exciting new project is now underway in Rector -- the creation of an impressive veterans memorial on Main Street -- adjacent to the new visitors center that is being developed.
Rector native George Barker (a retired Maj. General) and police chief Glenn Leach are serving as co-chairmen of the veterans memorial committee.
Rector always has been a community which honors and supports its veterans and this will be an opportunity for everyone to participate in an appropriate memorial. The memorial will honor all veterans and all branches of the military, with special tribute to those who died in service to their country.
Lots of details are forthcoming on the effort. This will be a memorial in which the entire community will be proud and it will be a structure which will draw regional interest.
