Livingston County plans to reschedule the dedication ceremony once construction of the monument is fully complete.

GENESEO — On Nov. 11, the dedication ceremony for the Livingston County Veterans Monument - scheduled to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Veterans Day - was canceled due to inclement weather.


Livingston County plans to reschedule the dedication ceremony once construction of the monument is fully complete.


Remaining work includes: (i) the addition of a recycled rubber surface designed to emulate the American flag, (ii) the permanent installation of 250 Veteran-crafted metal poppies, and (iii) general landscaping.


At this time, there is no set date for a future dedication ceremony since completion of the open-air monument is dependent on warm, dry weather conditions.


“We look forward to a future dedication ceremony that showcases the monument in all its glory - with all of its elements on full display” said Jason Skinner, Director of Livingston County Veteran Services.
