On Christmas day an active duty veteran visited the Park – 2Lt Matt Chapman, USAF, stationed at Tyndall AFB, Florida, near Panama City, Florida. The snow added the finishing touch needed to make this a very special tree with a very special message for all our veterans. You are remembered and appreciated!

Scouts Honor Veterans...The Three Rivers District Boy Scouts of America are honoring ALL veterans, both active and retired from ALL branches of the service who reside in Carroll County, during the month of December by placing tongue depressors with the names of service men and women written on them. These names were then placed on a Christmas tree in the Carroll County Veterans Memorial Park.

All veterans were invited to participate by having names written and hung on the tree. The initial ceremony was on Saturday, December 4th at 10 A.M. for Carroll County Veterans. Every Saturday during the month of December additional names were placed on the tree. The recognition event ended on Friday, December 24th.
Three Rivers District scouts are doing this to honor those that cannot be home during the Holiday Season. Jeff Anderson, Three Rivers District Historian, was the project officer for the scouts. A total of 1,105 names were listed on the tongue depressors by Jeff Anderson. He hung them on the Christmas tree that he placed in the Carroll County Veterans Memorial Park during December 2010.
