SPOONER– A replica of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is coming to Spooner, but before it does some funds much be raised and work done to prepare a home for it.

A committee was formed this week to get ready for the display at the Spooner Area Veterans memorial Park across from Tony’s Riverside.

“It’s going to be in the memorial park and we’re in the process of getting it installed, getting the site ready and fund raising for the project,” said Ron Bowers, a member of the committee.

Other committee members include Ken Rouse, Pete Hubin, Betty Hubin, Jim Casler, John Leckel, Jim Dienstl and Terry McNitt.

The committee is starting to get ideas for raising funds, and will be announcing them in coming weeks.
