The Reynoldsville War Memorial Committee held its regular meeting on October 2.
The committee discussed the efforts to obtain new at-large members. At this time new members can join via a form in the latest edition of Reynlow Community News . The committee will decide what benefits the members will receive, including the possibility of discounted prices on memorial bricks and other perks. So far, sixteen people have responded.
To establish what new at-large membership entails, the committee will organize at its November meeting. That will include the adoption of by laws as the operating committee of the war memorial. The by laws will include what officers will be elected and for what terms, what committees will be formed, etc. It is hoped that everything will be in place as of January 1, 2020.
It was also decided to keep the meeting date on the first Wednesday of every month at the American Legion in Reynoldsville.
Work is progressing on the demolition of the site itself. The committee thanked Ralph “Tucker” August and borough officials for the work being done as well as Advanced Disposal, W & W Equipment, and Shortway Service for their contributions.
The first building is down and it is hoped the demolition on the second building will happen next week. The committee also discussed the possibility of obtaining a third building at the site.
The next regular meeting will be held November 6 at 7 p.m. at the American Legion.
