Helping Communities, One at the Time.

A tribute to the citizens of North Chicago, erected in 1948 who gave their lives in service of our country was in need of maintenance. . Rotary Club of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff stepped in with a generous donation to refurbish the monument to honor their memory. Work commenced on August 12, 2018 to strip the plastic sheathing and prepare the surface for a new finish. A big thanks to Phil Manley and his son, Tanner of Manley Construction to head the volunteer team.

Located at 1850 N Lewis in North Chicago
