AITKIN — A patriotic unveiling of an All Veterans Memorial will be conducted at 1:30 p.m. Sunday on the Aitkin County Courthouse lawn.

The boulder and granite memorial, measuring more than 16 feet in length, was commissioned by the Persian Gulf Support Group of Aitkin and was created by Cuyuna Range Monuments. Wreaths will be presented for military conflicts. Patriotic live music and guest speakers will honor vets. Those attending may bring lawn chairs for the ceremony. Refreshments, including a cake modeled after the memorial, will be available at Westside Church.
