Please plan for the weather, the event will happen rain or shine, cold or hot. The actual dedication of the monument is scheduled for October as part of Hickory Shirt Days.

The project started last October when VFW members asked the City of Forks and Clallam Transit to place the Gold Star Monument at Forks Transit Center. Then fundraising efforts began to raise the $90,000 required to purchase the beautiful monument which will be placed in the grassy lawn just north of the transit center and south of Peninsula College.
