On March 17, a small group gathered to celebrate the groundbreaking of the a Veteran’s Memorial, which will be built within the plaza next to City Hall. The dedicated area will utilize the labyrinth that currently exists and will symbolize a “walk with veterans.” Additional features will include benches and lighted flags for each branch of military. There will also be a retaining wall engraved to memorialize the veteran sacrifice along with an art sculpture. “It is my hope,” said Mayor Tom Ellis, “that the Veterans Memorial will be an integral landmark in Happy Valley, ensuring that other veterans in our community are remembered.” For more information about the project, check out the link below.
