Stock graphic images are defined as any image that has been engraved on the Memorial Wall. Custom images must be approved by the City. No spaces are reserved until payment in full is received.

Engraving schedule: Engraving is done once per year in May. Requests are due by April 1. Dedication of newly engraved spaces is done annually on Memorial Day.

On the engraving year a letter is sent indicating the completion of the engraving and announcing the service. The annual Memorial Day service is at 3pm.

Employee of the Month

Brianna Bowker has led our Recreation Division since 2018 and she’s worked tirelessly since then to raise the bar for the many programs and activities she oversees: youth and adult sports, pre-k childcare, special events, summer camps and after school care for elementary students, and much more.  Brianna is a driving force for our department and sets a positive example for the staff she leads and the patrons she serves.  We wish we could say more to emphasize how important she is to our organization, but we’ll settle for a big THANK YOU BRI!!!!

Park Partner of the Month

We wanted to recognize our community partner the US Coast Guard, and specifically their Rescue Swimmer unit that uses our facilities to train.  Coast Guard personnel are always quick to volunteer assistance and we are so grateful for our partnership with our local USCG members.  Semper Paratus!
