ROMEO — There was a service project Aug. 10 at the World War monument north of Romeo. Nine people showed up to clean 25-years worth of tarnish off the plaque. The group also pulled weeds and picked up trash.
The group was The Just Serve group and included (right to left) Jim Duran with the VFW, Brian Knight, Kurt Valentine, Steve Sorensen, Kate Brooks, Linda Larsen, Kim Christensen and Bob Suter. Not pictured Cynthia Valentine.
The Monument was put up after World War II to honor those who served and died in both wars from Conejos County.
