All gave some; some gave all

Over one year of planning and preparation led to the groundbreaking ceremony for the Let Freedom Ring Veterans Park July 6 at Cuero Municipal Park. From the vision of the DeWitt County Historical Commission, the park is scheduled to open Sept. 30.

The veterans park will include a bell and emblems with each branch of the military: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corp, Navy and Merchant Marines. Instruments will also be featured in the park, including chimes, xylophone, percussion, marimba and bells. Pavers with the names and branches of those who served will also be featured in the park. The deadline to purchase pavers is July 16.

Steering committe members have worked tirelessly to bring the park from an idea to life with funds for the park almost completely paid for by donations. Committee chair Peggy Ledbetter was thrilled at the turnout last Friday and the overall support from the community and the historical commission.
