A project to spruced up the town's war memorial is underway and will be unveiled in time for Veteranís Day this fall.
The granite memorial in downtown between Main and Common streets will be upgraded by the installation of a brick patio and handicap ramp as well as a granite podium and granite benches, according to project coordinator Peter Phaneuf. The names of veterans from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq will be etched on paver stones within the patio.
The project will cost $25,000, which town meeting funded last spring.
The original memorial was built in 1970 and includes the names of veterans from World Wars I and II and the Vietnam War.
