VFW Post 8189 auxiliary is holding a fundraiser to purchase grave markers for veterans to be used at the Stage Stand Cemetery in Homosassa.

The veteran markers are made of cast aluminum with a bronze color. They will hold a small American flag. The price is $10 a piece. Auxiliary Secretary Renee Tennant is heading up the fundraiser.

"The Stage Stand Cemetery is the final resting place for 237 Veterans and it is our goal to make sure each one gets a marker," Tennant said.

Anyone who donates for the cause will have their name put on a card and hung around the Post for all to see.

Donations can be mailed to VFW Auxiliary 8189, P.O. Box 46, Homosassa, Springs, FL 34447 or can be dropped off at the post which is located at 8856 W. Veterans Drive, Homosassa.
