Funds being raised for the Mercer County Honor Marker Program this week. Pork chop meals are being served during the Aledo Main Street Farmers Market this Thursday from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at Aledo Central Park. Honor Marker t-shirts will also be available for sale. Organizer Jay Doherty says there are also other ways to contribute to the cause.
The effort aims to properly recognize veterans buried at Mercer County area cemeteries with honor markers. Doherty says the project also serves as a local history lesson.
The honor marker program was started a couple of years ago.
