SYKESVILLE, Md. - The town of Sykesville is nearing a fundraising goal for a downtown memorial to military service members.
The Carroll County Times ( http://bit.ly/WZ6MXV) reported Friday that donations total about $8,000. The goal is $10,000.
A town committee is working with the local American Legion Post on the project's design. It will include a "memory walk" paved with bricks. Some of the bricks will be engraved with the names of donors, war fighters and significant figures in the town's history.
