Dan Brown, co-organizer of the Annual Fallen Heroes Golf Outing, presented a check to the Community Building Development Team (CBDT) at their August Team Meeting, to go toward the Veteran’s Memorial Clock Tower to be built at the corner of Main and W. Maple Street.

The golf outing is held each year to raise funds to maintain Veteran’s Memorial Park, which runs east of Main on Oak Street. The $1,576 check presented to the CBDT represented half of the net profits earned from the 2016 Fallen Heroes golf event, which includes team entries, hole sponsorships, and donations.

Brown’s relatives Alisha and Stevie Brown also assist with this fundraiser event.

Brown has plans to expand the park along the north side of Cedar Creek and possibly on the west side of Main St.

Kurt Mabie, president of the CBDT, gratefully accepted the donation with a statement securing these donated funds to be earmarked for the Veteran’s Memorial Clock Tower. Brown, Rose Powell, and Pat Ensley, all CBDT members, are currently organizing a community group and working with the local American Legion to erect a bell tower. This tribute will be provided to honor our community’s veterans as part of the “Heart of Cedar Springs” on the south corner of the library lot. A guest speaker is scheduled to explain one possible Memorial Tower design at the September 20 CBDT meeting being held at Hilltop School at 6 p.m. All are invited to attend these informative meetings and get involved with any of several committees or activities.
