Since the launch of the Carver County Korean & Vietnam Veterans Memorial Project, the Waconia Lions Club members have met with over 40 organizations and engaged citizens throughout Carver County in their effort to both identify 135 Korean & Vietnam Veterans who qualify for the trip and raise the $83,000 necessary to make the trip a reality. The response from Veterans and the outpouring of support from the community has simply been phenomenal, insuring that all objectives of the project will be met!

The Waconia Lions would like to sincerely thank everyone who has donated to the Carver County Korean & Vietnam Veterans Memorial Project!  In addition, the club would like to recognize those who have helped sponsor the project with a donation of $500 or more:
