Gold Star Memorial constructed

Karen Vibert-Kennedy/Sun-Gazette

Bailey Granite, of Kentucky, assembles a granite bench during the installation of the Central Pennsylvania Gold Star Families Monument at the Lycoming County Veterans Memorial Park in Williamsport on Tuesday. A Gold Star Family is the immediate family of a fallen service member. The memorial was a team idea from local individuals who wanted to bring the memorial to Lycoming County and has been in the works since September. The memorial became a reality through the generosity of local people and organizations as well as the hard work of the committee members. The monument will receive its finishing touches and be dedicated next year.
