Park needs $70,000 in month for goal

AIKEN -- Fund-raisers for the Aiken Veterans' Memorial Park will have to raise more than $70,000 in a month in order for the park to be finished by Memorial Day, one of the group's leaders said at a Saturday rally. "We didn't get the numbers I had hoped for today, but if everyone in this room would go and sell five bricks ... it can be done by March," said Ed Hammons, finance chairman of the veterans' coalition. Nearly 100 people attended the rally at the University of South Carolina Aiken gymnasium.
