On June 9, at 1 p.m., American Legion Post 72 will honor the late Ron Parks by rededicating Veterans Park as the Ron Parks Memorial Veterans Park.
Parks was the driving force behind cleaning, installing lighting, installed barbecues, having trees trimmed and keeping the park mowed. He insured that the park is a place of beauty, a spot that families could enjoy, an area the town can be proud of.
Parks was a United States Army veteran and a member of the American Legion.
A monument has been added to the existing ones, renaming the park. The ceremony is open to the public.
