CAIRO, IL (KFVS) -

The Cairo Public Library is fronting an effort to build a memorial. It will honor two people killed, and a third woman who was hurt during a bank robbery in May 2014.

The incident took place at the First National Bank.

Anita Grace and Nita Smith died in the attack.

The library board is working with the city to build a memorial in Halliday Park.

The plan is to build two pink marble benches in honor of those two women killed.

It would also have a tree specially marked in honor of the third woman injured.

If you want to help make the project a reality, you can stop by the library in Cairo and make a donation.
