Mount Zion Historical Society News: Veterans' Pavers
There have been a number of veterans’ pavers installed in the Veterans’ Walkway this year, bringing it to a total of 595 pavers either installed or ready to be installed. Anyone desiring to order a paver for the walkway can obtain an application from the Mt. Zion Historical Society’s web site, www.mtzionshistoricalsociety.org, or by contacting Susan McClintick (McClintick Road, Weedville, Pa.) Phone 814-787-7823.
Eligibility: To be eligible for a paver, the veteran must have been born or buried in either Jay or Benezette township, or have lived in either Jay or Benezette Township for over 10 years. Also, any veteran who is a member of Chapter 720 of the Vietnam Veterans of America, or has been a member of the local American Legion for over 10 years is also eligible to purchase a paver. Free pavers are available for those veterans who served prior to WWII, and those who were either killed in action or were POWs.
Veteran Names & Pictures: The Society also maintains veterans’ names and records on the website mentioned above. Any information you can add to update this list would be most appreciated. This year we made an extensive canvas for veterans’ names under the leadership of Rudy Cadori, and in the near future the society will be adding 199 new names to our current list, making a total of 1109 names. Pictures can be added to the website and are greatly encouraged. This service is provided free of charge, simply mail or email the picture.
