The dedication of Barnwell's Veterans Memorial Park Memorial Day, 2005.
The Dedication of the Barnwell Memorial Veterans Park took
place on Memorial Day 2005. Some of the speakers that day were State Rep. of Dist.91 Lonnie Hosey, and VVA State
Council President, Alta Milling.
The Mayor of Barwell, the Honorable Mr. Lemon, our own President Danny
Black and our Secretary, Eddie Hair. What a day to remember that was!
Since the dedication of the Veteran's park, much work has been done to improve
it. Many more trees have been planted, the walkway to the flags has been added and one by one more memorial plaques and bricks
are being purchased by families of those who have served our country.
People gathered beneath the 'Huey' after the
VVA Member Bill Strickland's Jeep. He and
wife Glenda are present for all parades,
Veteran's Funerals and other events with the Jeep. Chapter 828 is very blessed to have them in our membership
VVA 828's Official Bag Piper, Tom Cuny. Tom
is faithful and plays for every program we have if he is available. We thank him for his loyalty.
Rep. Lonney Hosey and Sen. Joe Wilson
Lonney Hosey was very instrumental in getting the
Grant for this Veterans Park in Barnwell.
Chapter 828 members with the help of the city of Barnwell. have turned
six acres of land here at the airport into a Memorial Park for Veterans of all Wars. There is still a lot of work to be accomplished,
and we will be following up on improvments as they occur.
Our thanks to all who have worked to make this happen.
