Not long after World War I, in 1923, the Wyoming
Women's Club decided that Wyoming should erect a
memorial honoring those who had served in that war.

They formed a testimonial committee that included
members of the village council. The committee
selected local sculptress Mary L. Alexander to create
the statue and raised $5,000 to commission the work.
During this period, it was decided that the statue
should honor all who served- the idealistic spirit
of America's youth. It shows a young man roling up
his sleeves ready to work without a rifle or the
uniform of a traditional doughboy.

The statue was dedicated on November 11, 1926,
the 7th anniversary of Armistice Day. It was unveiled
by Mayor Frank Bonham on the lawn of what was then
the Wyoming Women's Club where it stands today.

This plaque is presented buy the Wyoming Women's Club
on the occasion of their 100th Anniversary
1916-2016
