After five years of planning, the construction of the Veterans Commemorative Plaza (VCP) located in Marley Park, is now complete. A special dedication ceremony held on Veterans Day, November 11, 2016 also celebrated the national holiday and veterans nation-wide.
The program, led by Bill Adams (VCP Chairman, Marley Park resident and veteran), included the ringing of a ceremonial bell eleven times, presentation of the colors by Luke AFB Honor Guard, the national anthem sung by Dennis Grau (VCP committee member and Commander of the Sun City West VFW Post), and Pledge of Allegiance by Boy Scout Troop 194.
The program honored all veterans in attendance, providing history of the holiday and vision of the VCP. The one hundred attendees were invited for an up-close look at the plaza, including the veteran and sponsor pavers (which will remain available for purchase on an on-going basis on marleypark.com/vcp), as well as refreshments on the beautiful, clear blue sky morning.
