Memorial Paver Application
New pavers at Veterans Park are dedicated every year at Celebrate Hoover Day in May. This picturesque pavilion houses benches with pavers to honor those Killed In Action. The pavers in the central area honor veterans from all branches of service. Flags representing the service branches hang over the area, and a large American flag waves above all.
