There are two War Memorials in the City of Monessen, that are in dire need of repair, restoration and cleaning. The cost estimate for this work is $10,000.

In this small community of 7,000 people, we understand that it is a difficult proposition to raise that kind of money. But these memorials honor our local veterans, so we want to try and make this happen this summer.

We are seeking donations to get these beautiful memorials restored to their original condition. The veterans of Monessen and their families would be eternally grateful for your help. Anyone who can contribute to this worthy effort, is asked to make checks payable to the “MONESSEN WAR VETERANS MEMORIAL TRUST”. The checks can be mailed to the MONESSEN WAR VETERANS MEMORIAL TRUST at PO Box 145, Monessen, PA. 15062.

Please come to the Monessen City park walking track and to the Eastgate Triangle to visit these Memorials. It would be a shame to not preserve them just for their beauty and more importantly for their meaning of selfless devotion to our great country.
