The goal of the 1971 Case High School
to raise $5000.00 to fund the
creation of the veteran plaque, install
the veteran monument boulder and create
the veteran brick walkway. From the
monies raised in our past 1971 we raised
$1000 to help sponsor this effort. We
still need to raise more, so we had
a fundraiser and collected another $1800.
If anyone who would like
to help and donate for this boulder
& plaque memorial please forward
your check to:
71 Veterans Plaque/Chuck Brandt
2031 Lathrop Avenue
Racine, WI 53405
You can make your check out to either

indicate on the check that it is for
the '71 Veteran's Plaque.
Also, the reunion committee is trying
to collect as many names as we can of

School who served in the military...any
branch. Please send any information
that you may have to Chuck's address
