Thank you Don Williamson - TK Class of 1957 - for continuing to share your artistic gift in designing the beautiful new Yankee Springs Township Veterans Memorial. The new memorial is located outside the fire station at M-179 and Payne Lake Road. Williamson also is the creator of the "Reclaimed Spirit" sculpture near McFall Elementary School marking the spot of the former school. Beautiful work!
