The town has monuments for most of the past wars located at the corner of Baltimore Street and Frederick Road. For the past several years the Town Of Funkstown has been working towards a memorial for the fallen solders of the Civil War. The memorial will be placed in the park along the actual battle grounds but the final site has yet to be determined. Although we are on our way this is going to be a long process as monuments are very expensive. 100% of The Day in the Park venders registration goes to the memorial fund. Irene Owens who does those wonderful counted cross stitch items for Olde Tyme Christmas raffles came up with an idea to do her part to help. She has spent the last year stitching up a beautiful piece that measures over 16″ square and is of a higher stitch count than she normally does for Christmas. We now have it framed and ready to raffle for just $1.00 a chance. The picture, matting and framing was all donated so 100% of the ticket sales will be going to the Civil War Memorial fund and the picture may be viewed at the town hall. This is a great way to take a chance for a wonderful piece of art, and help remember to fallen men all at the same time. Tickets are on sale to everyone at the town hall now and will be sold up to right before drawing that will be held Saturday night July the 21st at the Day In The Park/Battle Of Funkstown Event, (You need not be present to win). Please thank Mrs. Owens for all her help with Community events as that is what makes Funkstown such a special place to live.
