HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - After several years of planning, construction is set to begin on the Reno County Veterans Memorial.

A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Thursday at the site of memorial in South Hutchinson.

Committee member Kelly Danyluck says site preparations are expected to be finished in about six weeks. Concrete work is planned for next spring. Installation of the seven memorial walls inscribed with veterans names will depend on fundraising.

Committee Chairman Matt Stiles says if fundraising is successful, the walls may be installed next year.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/1K0dq4u ) Stiles estimated planning for the memorial began in 2010.
