A grassroots effort by a small group of dedicated volunteers to honor the men and women from the Pottstown area who served in World War II is making progress.
The World War II Memorial at Manatawny Park project even has its own Web site, www.ww2potts.com, thanks to Matthew Mickletz.
The Memorial will stand "as an everlasting testament to the over 3,900 men and women from Pottstown and its nearby suburbs who served during this great conflict from 1941to 1945, according to the Web site.
The project needs money, material donations and volunteers. Learn more about how you can help by going to the Web site. You can even make your tax deductible donation online.
