What A Spectacular Day!
The Veterans Memorial Park Board of Directors hosted a Groundbreaking Ceremony at the park site on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29, 2017. Over 150 dignitaries, veterans, local officials and members of the community attended to participate in activities which included the Color Guard, National Anthem, Flag Raising, Rifle Salute, Taps, the Missing Man Flyover and the official breaking of ground. Much information was provided and a good time had by all. Thank you to everyone who came out and showed their support! Here are a few pictures from the day:
