Veterans Memorial Park Dedication Today

In Community Alert on November 11, 2016 at 9:45 am

A dedication ceremony will be held today at 2 pm at the new Benzie County Veterans Memorial, located behind the Watson Benzie dealership between South St. and Grace Road, west of US 31.

Arthur Melendez, an Elberta resident, veteran, and volunteer with the Benzie County Veteran Affairs Committee, said there will be a civil war cannon, 21 gun salute, and “a whole bunch of hoopla.” But the the ceremony will be short and sweet, so get there right at 2, enjoy this lovely November weather, and pay your respects this Veterans Day.
