New Veterans Memorial is dedicated

COLERIDGE —  The street just west of the new Coleridge Area Memorial Plaza was packed with people from across northeast Nebraska Monday afternoon.

Nearly 400 people showed up for the 2 p.m. dedication for the Coleridge Area Memorial Plaza.

Close to 30 American Legion Riders had come into town ahead of the dedication service. A number of the Riders stood at attention holding an American flag on the edge of the Plaza during the ceremony. Their motorcycles were lined up in a row next to the sidewalk behind the crowd.

George Hefner, Chairman of the Coleridge Village Board, welcomed all those who had come for the dedication.

Hefner told how members of the American Legion Post 114 had approached the board a little over a year ago about using the vacant downtown lot for a Veterans Memorial.
