Bushong event raises funds for North Lyon County Veterans Memorial

Bushong was the site of a fundraising event Saturday where a memorial to veterans is under construction.


The North Lyon County Veterans Memorial board members held a fundraiser that included a car and truck show, live music, a silent auction and vendors. Former State Sen. Jim Barnett, who is running for governor also stopped by. Board president Dianne Smith says she's working to preserve the memory of local veterans.

Saturday's event was specifically intended to raise money for women and nurse veterans with the goal of raising more than $3,700 for a memorial to those women.
