Bishop’s new veteran memorial committee officially launched
Several months ago, Doug Bishop helped launch the Jasper County Veteran’s Memorial Fund and Commission Committee in an effort to have two new veterans’ monuments, placed on the Jasper County Courthouse grounds.
“We’ve had our official fundraiser kick-off,” Bishop said. “Joel Jones at Hy-Vee Gas had us pump gas out there for a couple of hours on Friday. We had veterans from Korea, Vietnam, (Operation Enduring Freedom), (Operation Iraqi Freedom) and Dessert Storm pump gas for two hours. They raised just a little over $1,000. That’s a pretty good run and very good way to get started.”
The kick-off is the first step toward raising the estimated $55,000 to $60,000 needed to complete Bishop’s vision for the future Jasper County Memorial Complex, which will be entirely self-funded.
