St. Charles County Government, the St. Charles County Veterans Committee and the St. Charles City Veterans Commission will host a special Veterans Day Ceremony at 1 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 10, at Veterans Tribute Park, 1031 Kisker Road in Weldon Spring. The event will be held at the park’s Veterans Memorial Garden, which will be open to the public for the first time on that day.
Overlooking the park’s two lakes, the garden will feature a Veterans Memorial Plaza with the names of St. Charles County soldiers who died in service to our nation engraved on stone panels. A Tribute Walk leading up to the memorial will showcase interpretive panels covering conflicts from the time St. Charles County was organized in 1812 to present day, along with plantings that bloom or have vibrant color at the end of each war.
The public is welcome to attend; refreshments will be served and donations will be collected for a "Support Our Troops Care Package Drive" for soldiers overseas. For more information about the event or care package item requests, visit stccparks.org.
