Adopt-A-Veteran Memorial Plaque 

Military squares are memorial spaces throughout the city dedicated to Manchester residents who lost their lives while serving their country. All fourteen squares have a plaque honoring the veteran who made the ultimate sacrifice.

In a partnership between Ward 10 Alderman, Bill Barry, and the City, the Parks, Recreation, and Cemetery Division made the plaques available for adoption for $300. The donation paid for cleaning, restoring, and preserving the plaque and mounting post.

Below is an example of before and after the restoration process.
