When building the Veterans memorial park, the park commission hoped that the different veteran’s organizations would hold their ceremonies at the newly constructed facility. To our pleasure, more and more events are being held at our park.

The park has been host to burials of veteran servicemen as well as Memorial Day services, Veterans Day services, Flag Day services and the Viet Now annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony to bring attention to the plight of families of unaccounted serviceman and women.
