The public is invited to recognize all Rutland Charter Township residents who served their country on Nov. 11 at 9 a.m. at the Rutland Township Hall, 2461 Heath Road.
Township officials will dedicate the new veteran’s memorial, half of a large, black granite stone dedicated to all the members of the military services: Pow-Mias, Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marines.
Emblems of each are etched into the stone installed next to the American flag in front of the township hall.
The monument's inscription reads: “This monument is dedicated to the men and women of Rutland Charter Township who have served their country.”
Lawrence J. Bauer American Legion Post members from Hastings will attend and make a presentation. Harley Marlett, an 11-year-old Hastings student, will present the $75 prize she won for a project at school to go the monument.
