Citizens and veterans of Pickens County have formed an association to create the Pickens County Veterans Memorial Park.
The Veterans Memorial Park will be located at Lee Newton Park. The memorial is being made possible only through donations. The Pickens Cub Scouts have even helped by breaking ground and beginning landscape work for the park to show that work is in progress.
They currently have a program set up called Bricks of Honor in which this park will honor veterans who have fought for our country and freedom by placing bricks engraved with their names.
The Association’s goal is to have the park completed by Veterans Day November 11, 2017. If you would like more information visit here.
Anyone wishing to honor a relative or known veteran could purchase one of the $125 Bricks to be placed at the memorial.
