This unidentified Oct. 27, 1955, newspaper article was found in a scrapbook owned by Town Historian Richard Schmal:
"This tablet is dedicated in grateful acknowledgement to the men and women of the Armed Forces of the United States of America who so nobly served their country during World Wars I and II and the Korean conflict. May the memory of their deeds and their names be perpetuated forever."
We believe the finished memorial is one of which the community can be justly proud. It stands on the Shelby school grounds near Highway 55. Although it is now constructed entirely of concrete, brick, and stone, Lions sincerely hope it will be treated with the respect due it because of the people in whose honor it was placed there. Some of them have made the supreme sacrifice for their country and us.
Sponsored by the Lions Clubs, the memorial is a project of past president Perry Naylor.
