GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The First National Bank of Greencastle is one of the first local businesses to donate to a new veterans memorial fundraiser by giving $5,000 to the project.

"It is our intent to erect the memorial at the Greencastle borough hall, and we have already received approval from the Borough Council to proceed with the project and build it there," said Duane Schroyer, head of the fundraiser.

The memorial's supporters, the American Legion Post No. 373 and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 6319, are estimating it will cost $60,000 to complete.

"This memorial will be a lasting legacy of how much we appreciate those Greencastle-Antrim citizens who sacrificed all and paid the ultimate price for us," Schroyer said. "We truly appreciate First National's strong commitment to our plans."
