VETERANS PARK RIBBON CUTTING ON NOV 12. The Lyndon State College Veterans Club will officially open the LSC Veterans Park with a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony on November 12. The 12:30 p.m. event will be at the Fountain Pond. The community is encouraged to share in this event.
LSC President Joe Bertolino and current Veterans Club President James Nagle will address the audience. The Veterans Club founder Jason Clark and former Club president Mark Hoffmann are also slated to speak prior to the dedication.
The Veterans Park is scheduled to be completed in three phases. The completed first phase involved installing letters spelling out “LSC Veterans Park” under red, white, and blue stars on the concrete wall overlooking the college’s Fountain Pond.
The Club has begun fund-raising for the next phases, estimated to cost between $4,000 and $6,000. Phase two is the placement of a granite reflection bench near Fountain Pond. The club hopes to install the bench during the 2012-2013 school year. The third phase, the erection of a series of plaques inscribed with the names of past and present LSC veterans, is slated for the 2013-2014 school year.
The pond is on campus near the library and the dining hall. No reservations are required. In case of rain, the ceremony will be in the Academic & Student Activity Center (ASAC), Room 100.
The Office of Institutional Advancement is seeking all Lyndon State veterans so they can be included the third phase of the Veterans Park. Anyone who is a veteran or knows of a veteran who attended Lyndon State College, please contact Belinda Plymak in the Office of Institutional Advancement at (802) 626-4877 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
