Living Memorial

In years to come, Philip's west entrance, adding historical interest, will be highlighted by a tribute to those who gave their lives in defense of our country.

The living memorial was the dream of retired main street shopkeeper, Hans E. Hanson, who said, "I just wanted to give something back to my town."

It will take many hands to nurture the trees, but the work of Greg Weber, who waters the plantings and helped in other ways, should be an inspiration. Greg is a former bank president who's not afraid to get his hands dirty.
