JC Penny, ski shop host Manistee fall fashion show


A total of 161 names were proudly listed on the bronze plaques of the newly renovated veterans’ memorial at the corner of First and Maple streets. The names are a stark reminder of the Manistee County people who died in service to the country.

Listed on the memorial are the names of those killed from Manistee County during the Civil War, Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War. It was an emotional ceremony that took place yesterday afternoon when over 120 people gathered to dedicate the renovated memorial.
