This year a new Veterans Memorial was erected on 6th
Street adjacent to the Fire Hall. It was funded by our post and
volunteer time of our members. It represents all branches of service.
A dedication ceremony was held on June 16th. Past Commander Lyle
Nelson and World War II veteran was the guest speaker. Granite benches
were donated by the Mammenga and Riitters families which provide
a quiet place to reflect.
The city of Randall is officially proclaimed as "The
City of Veteran's Memorials". This is due to the four memorials
in Randall. Directions to memorials are found on our Post website.
