APPLICATION DEADLINES:

April 1st for engraving by Memorial Day

The dream of a Veteran Memorial and Park is coming to life.  The memorial and park will be located at 307 W. Main St. where a dilapidated house once stood.  The City has turned this project over to local Veterans and citizens enthroned with the honor of designing a new Veteran Memorial and Park and completing the fund raising.  Members of the Veteran Memorial and Park Committee include: Larry Meagher, Jim Pickle, Alisha Hudnall, Dave McGregor, Ron Barron, Sandi Brecht, Howard Hudnall, Merv Raines, Earl Horn and Kasi Howard.  This Committee will be visiting other towns with similar memorials and inquiring about their accomplishment.

Donations are greatly appreciated and are being accepted at VFW Post 7641 and the New London City Office.  Applications for veteran name placement on the memorial may be printed by clicking on the link above or picked up at Two Rivers Bank, Danville State Savings Bank, New London City Office or VFW Post 7641.  Please mail complete applications and payment or donations to the address below.

UPDATE: October 25,2013

 

Friday, October 25th, 2013, was a big day for the New London Veteran Memorial Park.  The tablets with veterans names were placed on the foundations at the site along with two benches.  The fallen soldier with a plaque will be here within the next two weeks.  The statues of the two soldiers will be here at a later date and the dedication will be in the spring of 2014.

 

Please be aware that the memorial is for our living veterans as well as the deceased.  There is a miscoception that it's only for the deceased, not so.  Living veteran's names will be placed on the memorial also.

 

Applications will continue to be taken and the fee will remain at $150.  The veterans names will be engraved on site annualy or when there are enough new names to warrant the engraver making a trip to New London.
