The Veterans Memorial Park of Jackson County is hosting a special fundraising campaign to complete the Veterans Memorial Park of Jackson County.

The goal of the VFW is to raise $250,000 by June 1, 2019 in hopes of completing the park by Veterans Day, November 11, 2019.
The Veterans Memorial Park of Jackson County was formed as an IRS 501(c)(3), a nonprofit corporation in 2015 for the purpose of constructing the park. The park will honor the memory of veterans from Jackson County, many of whom paid the supreme sacrifice in the defense of freedom, recognize and honor those who served and are currently serving in our nation’s military, and promote patriotism and knowledge of U.S. Military history in our schools.
To date park construction has been funded with donations of volunteer labor, cash, construction services, equipment use and materials. The completion value of installed work totals approximately $250,000.
The first phase, now complete, included installing a concrete trail to the center where the monuments will be placed, the installation of military equipment, the installation of memorial pavers and the installation of memorial benches.
The second phase will include black granite monuments and informational kiosks. The informational kiosks will include information about each branch of the military and local stories from veterans who served our country. There will be a total of six kiosks with 36 pages of information. A pavilion will also be built to assist teachers with children who would like to visit the park for field trips.  
The Veterans Memorial Park hopes to provide a legacy asset to eduction the future generations that “ Freedom is not free”. The VFW is continuously working to continue forming a partnership with the Jackson County Board of Education and the Scottsboro City Board of Education to help educate future generations about current and past military service.  
It is the Veteran Memorial Park’s vision that each grade 3-12 have the opportunity to participate in an annual field trip in beginning in 2020.
The success of the park so far has been because of community support. Donations can be made to the Veterans Memorial Park of Jackson County and mailed to 1616 Heroes Drive, Scottsboro, Alabama 35768. Donor markers may also be purchased by downloading the form at www.vmpjc.com.
For additional information, please contact Larry Becker, Board President at 256-656-9824.
