Dedication set for Horton Veterans Park & Museum

(KNZA)--A dedication ceremony is planned Saturday morning, November 11th, for the new Veterans Memorial Park and museum in downtown Horton.

The project, spearheaded by community service organization Reinvent Horton and local veterans, has been several years in the making.

Reinvent Horton President Connie Werner said they wanted to do something to honor local veterans.

The Veterans Park and Museum are located in the 800 block of Central Avenue. The museum will house donated military memorabilia. The building features a mural that serves as a tribute to local veterans who were killed in action.

The dedication ceremony will begin at 11:00 Saturday morning with a presentation of arms, followed by a program featuring several speakers. There will also be a pinning ceremony for Veterans at the event.

There will be a luncheon at 12 noon at the Blue Building for the public. The afternoon can be spent touring the park and museum.
