Camp Douglas, WI – Fiber optic internet, voice and technology solutions provider, Lynxx Networks, recently donated $10,000 to the New Lisbon Veterans Memorial Committee to assist in achieving its goal of raising funds to build a veterans monument.   The monument will be built in the city of New Lisbon on a parcel of land located at the corner of East Bridge and Main Streets adjacent to the historic dam on the Lemonweir River. 

The Lynxx Networks board of directors made the commitment to support the efforts of the New Lisbon Veterans Memorial project.  Jim Costello, CEO, commented, “The members of the Lynxx board are very pleased to support the New Lisbon Veterans Memorial project.”  Costello added, “The board recognizes the many veterans from the New Lisbon area who served in our nation’s wars and those who gave their life for freedom.” 

According to Roy Granger, New Lisbon Veterans Memorial Committee member, the committee has raised 2/3 of the funds needed to meet its goal. The timeline for the completion of the monument is the fall of 2022. 

Granger reminded the public that the deadline to submit a New Lisbon area veteran’s name is August 31, 2021. The committee is collecting names of veterans who live or lived in the area served by the New Lisbon School district or have lived in the area for a minimum of 20 years. The monument will feature six war/peace time pillars. Veteran’s names will appear on the pillar of the war he or she served in.  To submit a name, contact Roy Granger at 608.547.7745.
