HANNA, Wyo. (AP) - Hanna’s missing brass WWI memorial plaque that went missing in April has been found.

The Rawlins Daily Times reports (https://bit.ly/1JTMAhL ) Gary Carlson, who works for the Town of Hanna, discovered the plaque Tuesday while preparing to mow a ditch on the outskirts of town. Carlson will be given a $500 reward for finding the plaque.

The Carbon County School District 2 board of trustees decided Tuesday to donate $2,500 to replace the plaque but was informed shortly after that the plaque had been found.

The brass plaque lists names of 114 Hanna WWI veterans and was raised soon after the war.

The district’s superintendent, Jim Copeland, says the donation could be used to develop a park after the old elementary school building is torn down.
