SCSAA Announces Challenge Grant
To Create Veterans' Memorial Wall

SIDNEY - The board of directors of the Sidney Central School Alumni Association (SCSAA) has made a $10,000 matching challenge grant to the Sidney Veterans' Memorial Park Association for the creation of a free-standing granite memorial honoring all Sidney Warriors who have served their country. The Sidney Alumni Veterans' Memorial Wall will be located prominently at the entrance of the park at the corner of Route 8 and River St. in Sidney.

The SCSAA, having previously earmarked money for this purpose, will use its challenge grant, matching each donation dollar for dollar to raise the remaining cost of $20,000. The Sidney Alumni Veterans Memorial Wall and freestanding granite memorial is expected to be completed by Nov. 1, 2015. The name of this challenge is Sidney Alumni Veterans' Memorial or "SAVM."

Your contribution will help honor the Sidney Alumni who have served our nation with integrity for the freedoms we enjoy, love and defend so dearly.
