A committee has been appointed to develop the Veteran’s Memorial at Fenton Freedom Park. The park, located within the triangle of West Shiawassee Avenue, West Elizabeth Street and Park Street is a City of Fenton Historic Site - 1837 Public Square, which was originally used for town meetings and Civil War troops mustered here before heading off to battle. The park has long been a place of remembrance to honor those who have served from our local community.
The new Veteran’s Memorial will consist of a Veteran’s pathway, filled with memorial bricks, a sponsor area, (7) flags honoring each branch of the United States military, a statue and commemorative wall. It is the goal of the Veteran’s Memorial committee to unveil the memorial on Veteran’s Day, Wednesday, November 11, 2020.
Initial funding for this project has been made possible by the Fenton Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, with support from the City of Fenton.
