State grants Edmonds veterans memorial $77K, $25K still needed

The drive to build a 5,500-square-foot memorial park to honor veterans has gotten a big boost — a $77,000 grant from the state.

Plans now call for construction to begin in June and for the memorial park to be dedicated Nov. 11, Veterans Day, said Ron Clyborne, who helped launch the drive for the park.

“We’re absolutely thrilled,” Clyborne said of the state donation.
