The Winamac Park Board is finalizing plans to add benches and a decorative sign to the Veterans Memorial Park at the corner of Monticello and Washington Streets. The VFW and American Legion Posts each plan to donate a bench dedicated to veterans to the park. The board decided Thursday night they want the benches to be a neutral color.
They also discussed the addition of a prominent wrought iron or powder-coated steel archway that prominently says “Veterans Memorial Park.” Park Board President Courtney Poor volunteered to head up fundraising for a maintenance-free sign, which may eventually be fabricated by a local business.
Winamac artist Greg Hildebrandt drew a rendering of the proposed bench and sign placement and donated it to the park board.
Poor told the park board he will discuss the next steps with the park advisory council before moving forward.
