At the December 16 Council meeting, Chair of the Veterans Memorial Committee Jay Zaetz gave an update on the progress of the memorial which is now 98% complete. Plans are underway for a dedication ceremony at the site May 17, followed by a fun day in conjunction with the South Burlington Recreation Department
Next month Zaetz will be bringing a resolution before the City Council to consider changing the name of Dorset Park to Veterans Memorial Park. Preliminary investigation by the committee did not show that the name of the park was linked to anyone in particular.
There’s still time to order a personalized paver for spring placement in the Pathway of Honor. The end of January will be the cutoff date for ordering pavers to be placed in April or May. Go to www.sbremembers.org for more information and updates on the project, or contact the Recreation and Parks Department at 846-4108 for more information about ordering pavers.
