"The memorial will have over 700 names going back to the Revolutionary War."

The list of names may be reviewed on the town website or in the town clerk's office, supervisor's office or town library.

"Contributions are still needed and are gratefully appreciated," Donley said. "Contributions can be sent to the Veterans Memorial Wall Fund, P.O. Box 101, Schroon Lake 12870. The Veterans Memorial Wall."

The committee consist of Donley, commander of VFW Post 362, Donald Sharlan, commander of American Legion Post 982, and Don Sage, quartermaster of VFW Post 362.
