$77K Eagle Scout Project Unveiled in Olivia

Dominique Claseman, a Life Scout living in Olivia, Minnesota, broke ground on April 27 for an amazing Eagle Scout Project — a new Veterans Memorial at Olivia’s Kubesh Park . Dominque sold paving stones to Veteran families in his county to fund the project, raising an impressive $77,000 in the process. These pavers line the walkway of the memorial which features 3 flag poles, a memorial stone for all the military branches, a battle cross, as well as benches for people who visit the memorial.

With help from his architect uncle, Dominique drafted the design for the memorial and oversaw the construction.

The memorial was officially unveiled on Memorial Day with an in-person dedication.
