Hartington man has a passion for projects that improve the community

Posted in:

HARTINGTON – Dan Kathol has always had a lot of pride in his hometown.

He has worked hard to make a better community ever since he moved back to Hartington in 2005.

Work on the latest project the 73-year-old has spearheaded – the Hartington Area Veterans Memorial – has just about wrapped up in time for its 2023 dedication Saturday, May 27.

“After three-and-a-half years on the project – working almost every day on it, getting veterans sponsored, raising the money, working on the design with the monument company and getting all the components pulled together – I am excited to see it completed,” said Kathol, the chairman of the veterans memorial project.

He also noted he is “relieved that we were able to construct the memorial on a very difficult piece of property in the heart of downtown Hartington in a prime location and to have it completely paid for and debt-free with approximately $25,000 left in reserve for maintenance and flag purchases.”

“I am excited for all the veterans who deserve the best memorial possible we can construct to honor them for their unselfish service to our country and finally give them a place they can call home,” Kathol said.
