Progress on the Wauzeka Area Veterans Memorial has come along rapidly in recent months at the entrance of the Wauzeka Cemetery on County N. Cement was poured and a concrete block wall formed in a semi-circle behind three flagpoles flying the American, Wisconsin and Prisoner of War flags. In front of the poles, a bronze, fiberglass eagle is perched, holding a flag. This statue was one of the last creations by sculptor David Oswald, of Sparta, and Roddy Dull, of Eternal Art Monument Company, of Boscobel. The beautiful eagle is part of the final vision for the memorial, which the planning committee hopes to see completed in the near future. Donations are still needed toward the granite tablets that will be installed at the memorial once enough funds are collected and Wauzeka area veterans’ names are organized for etching. To inquire about donations or to purchase in-memory brick pavers, contact Joanne Peloch at pjpeloch@gmail.com or (608) 875-6489 or visit wauzekaveteransmemorial.com. Eternal Art Monument Company, of Boscobel, is the project designer. Also, at this time, Paul Porvaznik is drawing the picture that will appear on the title stone. (Photo by Correne Martin)
