As of November 17, 2018
, Parl Guthrie of VFW Post 3348 (Shoreline) and Jim Morrison of VFW Post 4314 (Burien) have attained their goal of raising $25,000 for the Northshore Veterans Memorial. This will cover the cost of the Veterans Memorial itself (a large granite monument) and an 8-person granite bench facing the Memorial, which will be in line with the U.S. Flag at Pop Keeney Stadium,
The purpose of this Veterans Memorial is to prominently demonstrate sincere and very deserved appreciation for those veterans who attended school in the Northshore School District and who served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Their names will each be engraved in the large granite memorial of those aforementioned veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
The Northshore School District has approved the monument and that it is to be placed at the entrance of the Pop Keeney stadium in Bothell. Their approval was conditional that all necessary funds for buying, shaping and engraving the monument, is to come from public donations.
The Northshore Veterans Memorial costs however are not done; there are maintenance costs, so their fundraising website will remain active.
