Regarding yesterday's story about a monument to the "McKeesport 23," Joe Hoffman writes:
We have reached our goal of $6,430. The monument is now paid in full. We had 63 contributors. We are not requesting any additional funds.
We would like to extent an invitation to the community and the "McKeesport Nation" to attend the dedication at 12 noon Saturday, May 13, at McKeesport Senior High School auditorium. Ten families of the "23" will speak about their brothers. The auditorium has room for 1,200.
