Memo: SAVM (Sidney Alumni Veterans Memorial)
The board of directors of the Sidney Central School Alumni Association (SCSAA) has authorized a $10,000 matching challenge grant (dollar for dollar) for the creation of a granite memorial honoring all Sidney Warriors who have served their country. The Sidney Alumni Veterans Memorial Wall will be located prominently within the "Flag House" entrance of the Sidney Veterans Memorial Park at the corner of Route 8 and River Street in Sidney. The SCSAA hopes its challenge grant will be the impetus to raise the remaining cost of $20,000.00
