New association formed for Spring City Veteran memorial
Daily Herald - 1/11/2018
SPRING CITY - A committee of Spring City residents known as the Spring City Veterans Memorial Association is working to ensure veterans of Spring City are not forgotten or ignored. With the support of city government and veteran organizations, a veterans' memorial and monument is being planned and pursued.
The memorial and granite monument to be located on the corner of 100 East and Center Street near the community center will be "In honor of the brave men and courageous women of Spring City who served in the Armed Forces of the Territory of Utah and The United States of America."
Donations for this important work are being accepted. Donations can be sent to Spring City Veterans Memorial Association, PO Box 126, Spring City, UT, 84662; or visit their Facebook page for more contact information.
The association also needs help identifying and verifying names of past and present Spring City Veterans and raising funds for this project. Additional specific information will soon be released to facilitate contributions and submitting names.
Spring City is recognized for its rich pioneer history and heritage, primarily through the preservation and restoration of pioneer era buildings and architecture. Great effort has taken place over the last fifty years by individuals and community involvement to ensure that heritage is not forgotten.
One aspect of Spring City's heritage that began even before settlement and continues today is the heritage of brave men and women who have served in the defense of country, state and community through military service.
Nearly 450 individuals have been identified. There are and will be more identified. This is a heritage of past, present, and future. Unfortunately this history and heritage has been mostly ignored.
