The High Country Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (HCCMOAA) is eager to report that they will soon be entering into phase two of the fundraising efforts for a new veteran’s memorial to be located in downtown Boone.
Phase one, which includes a generous donation of $10,000 by the HCCMOAA, will be soon be wrapping up. Letters requesting support from eight local veteran’s organizations have been sent and MOAA representatives have visited each group to provide details and answer questions about the project.
Phase two will include contacting donors in the business community and cultivating partnerships with local businesses to utilize different fundraising methods. The HCCMOAA hopes that Phase Two will be completed by November 1, 2016, with a projected groundbreaking in early spring 2017.
