PAUL BOSSCHEM: Many people, businesses helped with Civil War cannon project

TO THE EDITOR:

I appreciate the News Advocate and Jane Bond for the the great article she wrote, “Restoring a piece of history” published on Nov. 17, on the American Legions Civil War cannon. It would not be possible to get projects like this done if it was not for all the people and businesses helping behind the scene.

The American Legion and all the veterans were integral in letting me work on this piece of history. It has been a highlight in my life. Ted Arens got me involved in this project, procuring the wheels, and I am grateful for all his time and help with it.

Several local businesses donated equipment or space to work on this project.

We will have it finished and at Veterans Memorial Park in the spring.
