Veterans Memorial Park bricks to be laid Saturday in Jasper

Jasper — Hamilton County Veterans Service Officer Clay Lambert invites family members who have bought memorial bricks to come out to Veterans Memorial Park on Saturday, March 22, from 9-11 a.m., to lay their bricks.

There will be no formal ceremony, just a time for friends and family members to choose a spot around the flagpole in the center of the park, remove a blank brick and insert the one they purchased. ROTC cadets, Lambert said, will most likely be assisting at the event.

Should there be inclement weather on Saturday, the event will be rescheduled for the next day, Sunday, March 23.

Memorial Day, May 26, Lambert said, is the projected date for the official ribbon cutting for Veterans Memorial Park. If all goes as planned the entire project should be completed in time for a Memorial Day celebration.
