To support the Cortland Veterans Memorial project, the Cortland Rotary Club

is making a $1000 donation.   Pictured (left to right) are Dick McClain,

of the project committee, Rotary board of directors Dennis Nisbett, Keith

Denman, Dean Palambard, and Don Petrosky.  With Ian McAleer, project

chairman, Tom Shortreed, Rotary president, and directors Atty. Robert Burkey,

Garland Bradshaw, Ed Jakubick, and Dr. Tom Montgomery.


McClain and McAleer thanked the Rotary Club for joining with the numerous other

organizations and businesses who are recognizing the sacrifices

made by those who have served, and their families.   The project funding

has reached $74,000 in donations, paver orders, and pledges -- with an

overall objective of $165,000 to build the project this summer.  


The committee kicked-off the funding effort last May, and they are planning

a special community observance on Armed Forces Day, May 19, 2018.
