Richard Sisk of Quertermous Masonry lays bricks Tuesday at the veteran's memorial in East Prairie. The memorial is a project by the Alumni Association of East Prairie in front of the old high school, with the bricks available for purchase to honor veterans. Bricks remain available for $30 and can be engraved while already laid to include a veteran's name, branch and years of service, title and medals received. Later this week, two marble benches will also be installed. Anyone who wishes to purchase a brick or other item, such as benches, a flag pole or landscaping in memory of someone who served can contact Sue Martin at 649-2669 or Alberta Bishop at 649-3634.
