This event includes a military salute presented by the Robert E. Coulter Jr., American Legion Post 1941. The names of the veterans/active duty personnel that have been installed in our Plaza since Memorial Day 2021 will be recognized.
The Veterans Memorial was dedicated on September 20, 2014. Our Memorial is unlike many Memorials in that it will continue to grow each year as memorial bricks are purchased and placed in the Memorial Plaza. The Community Park District of La Grange Park's Veterans Memorial was built to honor ALL active duty and military veterans whether they served in times of conflict or times of peace. We feel that it is important to recognize all of our men and women who have served or are now serving because they never knew what tomorrow would bring as they protected America. There is no better way to honor your favorite active duty or military veteran than by placing a brick in his or her honor in our Plaza.
Memorial bricks can be purchased by submitting an order form from the link below. If you have any questions you can call the park district office at 708-354-4580 and speak with Amanda Kennedy.
Something New: In response to community requests, donors who have purchased a memorial brick for the plaza will have the opportunity to buy a replica brick that can be given as a gift or kept for their own special memorial. Special prices for replica bricks are as follows: 4 x 8 Bricks are $60 and 8 x 8 Bricks are $75.
Brick orders will be placed once a year with a January 31st deadline for all orders. A replica brick order form can be found by clicking the link below.
