CLARENDON – Jacob Crandall is working on a new Veterans’ Memorial at Hillside Cemetery for his Eagle Scout project. This photo shows Jacob’s father, John (left), and Jacob’s uncle Tom Crandall, a mason.

They are pictured with a memorial that includes five granite etched stones (for the Marine Corps, Army, Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard), and a pentagon-shaped concrete base. The memorial also will include a 25-foot flagpole.

John Crandall is pictured with his sons Jacob (center) and Jeremy. The memorial will be dedicated on Memorial Day, May 30, after the Memorial Day parade through Holley to the Hillside Cemetery.

The cemetery’s chapel will be open that day for tours from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Many military items will be on display at the chapel.
