The Parks & Recreation Department would requests your assistance in following a new addition to the Town of Grand Island’s annual Veterans Day program. At the suggestion of community members, we will honor individual veterans during the ceremony and plan to do a cyclical program.
Last year we honored those veterans of WWII. This year we will focus on the Korean War survivors. Future years the highlighted honorees will be the Viet Nam, the Cold War, and the Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan survivors.
Would you please assist me by submitting the name of your Korean War member and include their address and phone number. A verbal salute will be read at the Town’s Veterans Day program that will take place at Veterans Park on Friday, November 11, 2011 at 11:00 AM.
Please send me your Veterans name by October 21, 2011, to 3278 Whitehaven Road, or phone in at 773-9680 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your cooperation. Contact Linda Tufillaro-Director, Grand Island Recreation Dept. with any questions.
