On Saturday, November 10th, the Village of Pleasant Prairie will hold a Veterans Day Ceremony to honor America’s service men and women and to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the dedication of Pleasant Prairie’s memorial. The ceremony will be held at 1:30 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial, inside Prairie Springs Park. The memorial is located on the south side of the park near the Veterans Ball Field pavilion.

“All are invited to recognize and honor the contributions and sacrifices made by our veterans, past and present,” commented John Steinbrink, Jr., director of public works for the Village. “We appreciate the continued participation of our local veterans’ organizations and would love to see more members of the community come out to show their support for our veterans.”

During the ceremony, bricks and benches will be dedicated, and a moment of silence will be observed. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony. On November 10th, donations will also be accepted for the Stars & Stripes Honor Flight program (www.starsandstripeshonorflight.org).  Orders for memorial bricks and benches are taken year-round. Bricks and benches are dedicated annually as part of the Veterans Day Ceremony.

More information regarding dedication of a brick or bench is available online at PleasantPrairieOnline.com under the Parks tab or by calling 925-6765.
