Route 251 dedication ceremony planned in Tonica

Posted by wlpo on September 22, 2016

Route 251 between Tonica and Mendota won’t just be Route 251 as of Wednesday.

State Senator Sue Rezin will join others in dedicating a stretch of Route 251 to the Witczak family who had seven brothers serve the country in either World War II or the Korean War. The highway between Tonica and Mendota will be called the “Witczak Brothers Memorial Highway.” A dedication ceremony will start at 10:30 next Wednesday morning at the Tonica fire station.

Seven sons of Thomas and Clara served in different capacities of the military. All made it back home from war but only Anthony is still alive.
