Dedication set for Sunday

A dedication ceremony at the Huron County Veterans Memorial on Shady Lane Drive honoring those who have fought, are fighting or will fight in the global war on terror is set for 1 p.m. Sunday.

A new stone will be added to the memorial, and Norwalk Police Officer Dave Ditz, a veteran of the war on terrorism, will speak. He and his wife recently returned from tours of duty in Iraq.

As with other stones in the memorial, those who have made the ultimate sacrifice will have their names engraved on the stone.

To date, the only Huron County resident lost in the war is Monroeville resident Jason Sparks, a U.S. Army soldier who was killed in action in Iraq. If others are lost, their names will be added on site.

Parking is available at the Huron County Job and Family Services building parking lot across the street from the memorial. Bring your own lawn chairs, since there will be no seating provided.
