Rotary Planning Memorial Monument
A proposal for a World War II
r eir.orial monument will be dis
cussed at a meeting of the board
of directors of the Southern Pines
i Rotary Club Monday night, E.
Earl Hubbard, club president,
| said this week.
If approved by the board, the
iproject will be referred to the
club membership, Mr. Hubbard
> The club has had plans drawn
for a permanent, marble monu
ment. to replace the wooden vet
erans' service board which was
removed from the grounds in
I front of the town library, after
complaints had been made about
its dilapidated condition. The
(hoard was originally erected by
the Rotary Club and listed more
, than 400 Southern Pines commu
nity icsidents who saw service in
I World War II.
I Mi. Hubbard said the Rotary
Club's tentative plan for the mon
ument is to put on it only the
names of local men who lost their
lives m World Wat II
"We hope to have every 'gold
star' member of the armed forces
ft em this town listed there," he
The list of names on the former
board, representing persons who
served 90 days or more in the
armed forces, was probablly not
complete, Mr. Hubbard pointed
out. The large number of names
would make it impractical to in
scribe them on stone.
Location for a new monument
has not been determined. The
club will confer with the town
council, Mr. Hubbard said, to dis
cuss the possibility of putting the
memorial somewhere on the town
hall-park block However, he add
ed, it may be felt that a location
: near the library or post office
would be preferable
