The All Fayette County Veterans Memorial, to be located at Huse Memorial Park in Fayetteville, is currently in the final design stage and organizers still are raising funds for its completion. Recently, Fayette County National Bank made a $5,000 donation to the project. Denise Light, vice president and cashier, and Louise Rakes, vice president and compliance officer, of FCNB, are pictured presenting a check to Lafayette Huse Veterans Memorial committee co-chairmen Elmer Pritt, left, and Rodney Myers. “It is anticipated that the $5,000 contribution by the Fayette County National Bank, along with other generous donations by local businesses and civic clubs, bricks already purchased and money raised from a musical benefit to be held from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 at the Fayetteville High School auditorium, will enable groundbreaking to take place soon,” Pritt said last week in a press release.
