Groundbreaking for the new wall and the Veterans Park

Thank you to all who attended The Groundbreaking Ceremony Saturday, June 30 at the Veterans Park to locate “The Wall”. The New Veterans Granite Wall is to be in Place by Veterans Day, November 11. All Veteran names that are on bricks at the park will be on the wall. August 1 is the deadline to make corrections or add new names to the wall. You can also contact Bob Kirkwood to obtain a digital list of the names at bobkirkwood9@gmail.com. They can be your sons, daughters, grandchildren, relatives and/or friends who are or were Veterans.
