Women veterans monument proposed

A new organization is tying to add a monument dedicated to women veterans in the town’s Veterans’ Memorial Park, located in front of Town Hall. The Middleboro Committee for Women Veterans Memorial hopes to raise at least $5,000 for a monument that would honor the efforts of women in the military in all branches of service, and all wars and conflicts. The idea must pass muster with the town’s Historical Commission and the Board of Selectmen, as well as the Memorial Park Committee, officials said. For more information or to donate, write to P.O. Box 254, Middleborough 02346, or call 508-344-6655.
