Veterans Memorial monuments, flagpoles installed

The three main monuments for the Savanna Veterans Memorial were installed Tuesday, Oct. 8, along with the 40-foot main flagpole and the two 35-foot flagpoles. Jo Carroll Energy assisted the Veterans Memorial Committee with the installation of the three flagpoles and the three main monuments honoring veterans and the various branches of the Armed Services. Mark Marrocco and Laura Roach from Depot Lighting have completed the in-ground lighting and Rockafellow Construction will be pouring the concrete floor. Half-pavers are expected to arrive shortly so the pavers can start being installed on the walls, committee members said. Just over 600 pavers have been sold and there is only room for 701 pavers on the walls. If paver orders continue to come in as they have been, the walls will be completely filled, committee members said.
