Wyoming County Veterans War Memorial organizers are sponsoring a two-man scramble golf tournament June 8 at Clear Fork Valley Golf Course with a 10 a.m. shotgun start.

Entry fee is $50.

Door prizes and a 50-50 drawing will be awarded.

All proceeds go to help fund the Wyoming County War Memorial in Oceana.

Spearheaded by the Veterans Support Group in partnership with the Disabled American Veterans and the Mullens American Legion Post, total cost for the memorial project is estimated at $60,000.

The project will honor veterans of all wars as well as those who served during peacetime.

Located alongside state Rt. 10, across from Gilliland Park and the Veterans Flag Memorial, easy access is one of the main features of the project.

The group is also working to have the road by the memorial, and through Oceana, designated as the Veterans Memorial Highway.

Organizers plan to unveil the completed memorial during Veterans Day ceremonies.

The Veterans Support Group, which includes the DAV and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), meets each Monday at 10 a.m. in the First Baptist Church basement in Oceana.

For more information, contact Denny Lester, Veterans Support Group, at 304-923-7803 or Bill Elkins, DAV, 304-953-3200.
