Heroes honored at Veteran's Park in Northfield

NORTHFIELD -

On Saturday, residents gathered for the dedication of Veteran's Park.

The community showed their support on Saturday in honor of the men and women who served our country.

The celebration featured a raising of the flag and the unveiling of a monument designed to honor the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marines.

The unveiling of the monument was only phase one of what the city has planned for the large lot, but according to members of City Council recognition of these veterans is what matters the most.

"We're here because of what they did for our country, so this park is just a small token of appreciation to show what the veterans have done for us," says Northfield Councilman Steve Vain.

Robert Webb, a Retired Master Chief Navy, "Well it means people will recognize us and I hope people will walk around looking at the names and they can put the names of their relatives and friends here too."

Residents can purchase a brick in honor of their family member or friend for fifty dollars or a bench for one thousand dollars. All proceeds will be invested right back into the maintenance of the park.
