VFW Post 1239 Men’s Auxiliary will host a sporting clays target shoot to benefit a new All Veterans Memorial planned for construction.
The shoot will take place at Illini Sporting Clays on October 5 at 9:30 a.m. Entry fee is $30 and participants receive 50 clay birds and dinner at the VFW Post. Please call 323-2127 for details.
Proceeds will go to the construction of a Veterans Memorial planned for a location at Beardstown Park District near the junction of Rt. 125 and Hard Road Ditch Road. The memorial has been in the planning stage for five years and the men’s auxiliary has raised over $11,000 through donations and cookouts.
A proposed drawing of the memorial will be published soon. It will be dedicated to all veterans from all branches of service.
