To the editor:
Have you visited All Veterans Park recently? We,
AMVETS Post 71 in Lincoln, have been installing new granite bricks
on a regular basis. The park is located on the corners of Union,
Pekin and College Avenue in Lincoln.
If you know of a veteran, male or female, who has served our
country honorably and is not presently represented in our current
display and you would like to purchase a personal individual granite
brick for only $35 on their behalf and add theirs to our display,
you can do so by picking up a form from a dispenser located at the
park site or by calling Ruth Haak at 217-732-8829.
We presently have over 2,000 individual bricks on display at the
park, along with a very user-friendly directory to help you locate
any individual veteran's brick quickly. There remains room for
several more bricks.
Armed Forces Day is this Saturday, May 17, and Memorial Day is
Monday, May 26. Please don't forget to fly your flags during both of
