An improvement project at the Reliance Cemetery, which was started in 2004, continued throughout the summer of 2005. Volunteers built a gazebo, and installed two statues, a memorial wall, and seven pillars.

The memorial wall lists all Reliance area veterans including one Civil War veteran. The pillars will be engraved with the names of Reliance area individuals who died while serving the United States in the military.

The Reliance Area Community Development (RACD), local Thrivent for Lutherans members, Modern Woodmen of America members, and other area residents have donated the funds and many hours of labor to complete the project.

According to project leader, Ron McManus, a few details remain to be finished. Maps of the cemeteries, both the Catholic and the city, will be posted under the gazebo for the convenience of visitors, said McManus.

An official dedication of the memorial will be held at a later date.
