Supervisor Bill Reilich is joined by Greece American Legion Post #468 for a Dedication Ceremony on Flag Day

Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board members Josh Jensen and Bill Murphy, Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon, Greece Administrative Judge David Michael Barry, Greece American Legion Post #468 Commander George Dadson, Jr., the Color Guard, and other members of Legion Post #468 for a special Flag Day Dedication Ceremony. The ceremony was held at Veteran’s Memorial Park (formally Badgerow Park North), which was renamed earlier this year in honor of the great military men and women who serve our country.

Legion Post #468 Commander George Dadson, Jr. was presented with a plaque from Supervisor Reilich which commemorated the 2018 Flag Day Dedication Ceremony. The Color Guard was presented with the American Flag and ceremoniously raised the flag up the flag pole at the park. A plaque was placed at the base of the flag pole, which reads: Dedicated To Our Great Veterans.

“Today was truly a special day as we held a dedication ceremony at Veteran’s Memorial Park and raised the American Flag” said Supervisor Reilich. “What better day to hold this special ceremony than on Flag Day. People across the United States celebrate Flag Day on June 14th each year to honor the United States flag and to commemorate the flag’s adoption. We are honored to dedicate this flag at Veteran’s Memorial Park to the brave men and women of our military”.

Veteran’s Memorial Park connects to Badgerow Park South on Latta Road by an extensive trail system. The 33 acre park contains tennis and basketball courts, a softball field, a multi-purpose field, a toddler playground, and an open shelter for parties. The numerous amenities make this a widely-used park in the Town of Greece. Veteran’s Memorial Park is located at 4614 Dewey Avenue.
