The Veterans Park is nearing completion. In recent days much has been accomplished at the park. The trees have been planted, the flowers are all in and blooming beautifully, the benchs are in, the flags are flying, and the fountain is in and almost fully functional. See the pictures below for a better appreciation, or better yet, stop by and visit the park. Tell us what you think.

Our Veterans Park reached a major milestone today as the last of the twenty granite panels was installed. We still have a lot to do once the weather breaks, but It's great to see the names of over 900 soldiers.

Much has been accomplisehd at the Veterans Parks in the last few weeks, and the panels in Veterans Park are nearing completion. Sculpture, and Water Feature will follow shortly. Stay tuned for more photos!
