Join Us, Make this Veterans Park Happen
Across The Pond Veterans Park work-group has developed a projected budget to description and Phase 1 of the work. Several developments make these targeted figures for outright purchase of the work; several actions will continue to off-set expenses as the development of the Project continues.
The project-group has found that several costly construction services are thought to be able to be accomplished thru the generous work of local contractors and builders offering services. In addition, a small bank account currently exists thru early unsolicited donations.
Cash donation will increase by active fund-raising events already scheduled. To this end, a financial work-group will be sought to work solely on the funding and fund-raising aspect of financing the project. General grant applications, as well as specific Veterans-focused grants will be sought by personel experienced in that work. General business solicitation has also begun. We believe area/regional support is strong.
Membership fees: Yearly single $35.00. Lifetime membership (couple) $300.00.

GEORGE L. SKYPECK
I was that which others did not want to be.
I went where others feared to go, and did what others failed to do.
I asked nothing from those who gave nothing, and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness … should I fail.
I have seen the face of terror; felt the stinging cold of fear; and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment’s love.
I have cried, pained, and hoped … but most of all, I have lived times others would say were best forgotten.
At least someday I will be able to say that I was proud of what I was … a soldier.
