Limestone County received two more donations, totaling $1,100, to pay for the Fallen Officers Memorial Monument planned for the Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Dennis Wilson presented a $1,000 donation at the commissioners court’s March 14 meeting on behalf of the entire Wilson family and in memory of his grandfather Earl K. Wilson.
“I’m happy to do this publicly,” Wilson said, “but I’m proud to do this on behalf of my family.
“He was an employee here at the Limestone County courthouse, where I grew up,” Wilson said of his grandfather.
The other donation for the monument was $100 from Hochheim Prairie Farm Mutual Insurance Association, presented by Wilson at the same meeting.
County Judge Daniel Burkeen asked Wilson for confirmation that the monument would be erected in time for the annual Peace Officers Memorial in May, and Wilson said it would.
