Hope everyone is celebrating and remembering all those that gave their all, so we can enjoy our Freedom. We have an amazing country, and we are blessed to live here.
The Dedication of this Veterans Memorial will be Flag Day, Wed. June 14th. Everyone is invited, and suggest bringing your own chair and head cover. It will probably be hot. We will have some pop up tents available. Starting time is 10 AM. please come early so that you can be seated at the time it starts.
We still have items that need doing. The Tiger grass for the center should start next week, Electrical should be finished, although the Service Flags have their own solar light. Some tractor work is needed. Wood chips are being donated, and those need to be spread after grading is completed..
Grass cutting so people can park their vehicles. Since my hubby is the point person. I go to bed worrying about the due dates and completions. Many of men from the Griswold Mountain Detachment 1121,Marine Corps League, Oakhurst have spent a lot of time working at the location, spraying weeds, clearing rocks, laying and staining cement with the Clampers and putting the benches together. The Boy Scouts have donated 4 benches to the projects. They also learned to lay cement and build the benches. So many people, Service Clubs, and Company's have donated time and work for this project. This is a lovely spot to just sit and relax, remember or just enjoy the nature of the area.
When we were there yesterday, several people drove into the park, because they saw the flags flying.
They are delighted to see the new Veterans Memorial in the park.
Have a wonderful day with your family and friends.
