Veterans Memorial Wall Dedication Ceremony to be held November 11

[slideshow_deploy id=’66738′]

On Tuesday, October 21, 2014 the Colusa City Council adopted a resolution in consideration of renaming Colusa’s Memorial Park to Veterans Memorial Park, effective immediately.

By request of Dennis Sanders, a representative of the Colusa Chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars asked the Council to consider renaming the park in concurrence of the new monument wall recognizing veterans of Colusa County.

The item was passed unanimously.

In just a few weeks, the Veterans Memorial Wall dedication will be dedicated with a ceremony held appropriately on Veterans Day, November 11, 2014 at 1:00 p.m.

“We invite everyone to come out and join us in celebrating this accomplishment,” said Dennis Sanders of the Colusa County VFW, “this has been a long time coming.”

Two years in the making, the Veterans Memorial Wall is a cooperative effort between the Colusa County VFW, the American Legion Post 218, and the community.


“By the dedication we should have placed over 375 bricks,” said Sanders, “however, there are over 1,200 veterans in Colusa County and we have a long ways to go before we have everyone on the wall.”

Since construction, interest has increased.

“While working on the wall, we’ve must have handed out over 40 additional applications for bricks,” said American Legion Member, Bill Tanner.

“Brick applications are ongoing,” said Sanders, “We will place regular orders and will set bricks as we get them in and then hold an annual dedication during Veterans Day each year.”

Additionally the group installed three new flag poles, purchasing a new American Flag and adding the California State Flag and a POW/MIA Flag.

Future projects include the addition of benches around the memorial and an arched entryway.

Construction is made possible through Fusaro Construction, B&J Concrete and assistance from Davis Machine Shop. The brick work is being completed by Scott Vedo and volunteers. McNary-Moore donated the Veterans Wall Memorial Plaque.

“We are extremely grateful for the phenomenal amount of help and support of the community to make this project a success,” said Sanders.
