Coal Miners Memorial to personalize fatalities

The Letcher County Coal Miners Memorial Committee has begun a new project to identify every mine fatality on the memorial rocks. The committee is seeking volunteers to write a short article on the miners including information on the accident and the miner’s family, hobbies, and interests, as well as a photo of the miner. For more information, call 606-855-4432 or e-mail coalminers@mikrotec.com.

The committee is also seeking new members who are residents of Letcher County. Those interested should submit a brief summary detailing why they want to be a part of the committee by Nov. 15 to Letcher County Coal Miner’s Memorial Committee, P.O. Box 21, Jackhorn, KY 41825-0021.
