The Town of Dartmouth is finalizing plans for new Veterans Grove Memorial to be dedicated later this year. The memorial will be located at the gazebo outside the Dartmouth Senior Center on Dartmouth Street. Dartmouth Veterans Agent Roy Oliveira and Veterans Advisory Board member Norman Gunderson are leading the effort. They say the grove is meant to honor those veterans from Dartmouth who died in the line of duty and all veterans who served. They will outline the project in this week's edition of Townsquare Sunday, and spell out ways the general public can contribute.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 am on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area. If you have a public event, festival, or neighborhood activity you want to publicize, submit your information here.
