The Freedom Park Memorial Committee and VFW Post 10721 will be conducting their seventh annual ceremony in memory of all veterans of the Armed Forces who have served our country and especially to those from Eagle County who paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. The ceremony will be held on Monday at 3:30 p.m. at the Freedom Park Memorial American Flag Pole Plaza in Edwards, three blocks off Interstate 70, Exit 63, on Miller Ranch Road on the west side of the pond.
The program will also include the official dedication of the fragment of limestone from the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the Pentagon, which is now installed at Memorial Park and symbolizes, for all of us, our continuing need for protection of our freedom and democracy. Join us to honor our fallen heroes and to support the troops and our hometown emergency responders who are serving today.
The keynote speaker will be Jack McLean, author of “The Loon,” and the program will include local musicians, the Battle Mountain High School Quartet “Shanana Mockery,” local dignitaries and members of Boy Scout Troop 222.
Please join us afterwards at The Bookworm in the Riverwalk at Edwards for a talk by author Jack McLean and simple appetizers, hosted by The Freedom Park Memorial Committee.
