Work has been progressing at the site of the Leadville Irish Miners’ Memorial and we will be having a ceremony on Saturday, September 17th at 10am to celebrate the completion of Phase 1. The centerpiece will be in place along with the spiral walkways and landscaping around the memorial.
All are welcome to attend and people will have time to wander and explore the unmarked graves. Leadville will be holding their Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day Parade at 2pm that afternoon. There will also be a dinner function and more details on that will be provided at a later date.
We are still actively fundraising to complete Phase 2 of the Memorial in 2023 – the glass panels which will contain the names of the 1300 or so people that we are commemorating at the site – naming the unnamed. Please consider making a donation to help ensure we can complete Phase 2 in 2023.
