Memorial ceremonies feature remembrance of those who lost their lives

The story of the Belmont Veterans Memorial Park is an example of turning vacant property into a needed use. The 1.5-acre property was donated to the township and developed as a memorial park under the leadership of then committee chair and current Township Trustee Chuck Weldon (pictured left). In 2001 the trees on the property were decimated by straightline winds. After removal, Weldon suggested creating a veterans’ park on the property and enticed many volunteer hours and donations to the project. Photo by STEVE AYRES
