Veterans Memorial in Whiting Opens
Saturday, April 24, 2010

Many in Whiting attended the opening of the new Veterans Memorial Park. Attendees included many members of the Community Reformed Church, who were veterans, had veterans in their families, or who simply wanted to participate in this tribute to our veterans.

There were memorial plaques dedicated to all branches of the service, as well as statues. A parachutist descended from the sky, and a giant screen displayed pictures of local veterans.
