Adopters 2023 Season

Adopt-A-Veteran Memorial Plaque 

In a partnership between Ward 10 Alderman, Bill Barry, and the City, the Parks, Recreation, and Cemetery Division, we 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.
