The WWII stone is settled and unwrapped.

Two newly engraved stones were installed at the Shelburne Veterans’ Memorial last week, one each listing the names of those from Shelburne who served in World War I and World War II. The 6-foot-by-3-foot granite monuments were carved at Granite Industries of Vermont in Barre and weigh approximately 1,800 pounds. The Shelburne Veterans Monument Committee plans a dedication on Veterans Day in November. Committee members will have a tent at Saturday’s Shelburne Day market near the monument.
