Citizens of Manhattan and Riley County are
reminded that twice a year names of Veterans and loved ones are placed in the patio
area of the Riley County Armed Forces Memorial. This year, being the 100th
Anniversary of the 1st Infantry Division, would be an ideal time to
honor your veteran with a memorial brick.
Names to be added in time for Veterans Day
must be received by October 13th to allow time for engraving of the
bricks. The cost remains $75 for 3 lines with up to 14 characters or spaces per
line. You may place your order for a brick at the Riley County Clerk’s Office
in the Riley County Office Building, 110 Courthouse Plaza.
The next opportunity to add names will be for
Memorial Day 2018. Make plans to participate in this year’s Veteran’s Day
activities, which will be held on Friday, November 10th.
