“It was raining the night before Veterans Day. WWII veterans were ‘walking the post’ in the mud around the Civil War Monument. To provide surer footing, a concrete apron was installed around the monument. The current park improvements include a flagpole, aprons of engraved commemorative pavers, monument lighting and enhanced landscaping.
“The Veterans Memorial Park will now provide more permanent facilities for patriotic remembrances. We invite all who wish to remember veterans to support this park.”
Don Creath, U.S. Army Veteran
