City of Green’s Annual Veterans Day Ceremony Is Sunday, November 11 at 2 p.m. at the Green Veterans Memorial Park; City to Dedicate newly recreated WWII Honor Roll Monument
Green, OH – The City of Green’s Annual Veterans Day ceremony is Sunday, November 11 at 2 p.m. at the Green Veterans Memorial Park, 1900 Steese Road.
The ceremony will include music from the Green Local Schools sixth and seventh grade choirs and honor local veteran Carl Mickelson for his service.
The ceremony will also include the dedication of the newly recreated WWII Honor Roll Monument. Originally the WWII Honor Roll monument stood at the corner of Greensburg and Massillon Road for years to honor those who served in WWII as well as those who served at home in the war efforts from Greensburg Township. In the 1970s, the WWII honor roll was dismantled due to disrepair. In 2017, the Green Lions Club donated $10,000 to the Green Historical Society to rebuild this important piece of Green’s history. This year Eagle Scout candidate Jarod Korn took on the endeavor, and coordinated the recreation of the monument at the Green Veterans Memorial Park to be dedicated on Veterans Day 2018.
Following the ceremony, refreshments will be served at Queen of Heaven Parish Life Center, 1800 Steese Road.
In the event of rain or inclement weather (including cold temperatures), the ceremony will be moved to Queen of Heaven’s New Parish Life Center, 1800 Steese Road. Parking for the ceremony will be available at the Fire Station, John Torok Senior and Community Center and Queen of Heaven Church.
Through generous donations of local businesses, individuals and organizations, the City of Green Veterans Memorial Park was built in 2010 with its final phase – the addition of the First Responders Monument was completed in 2017.
