PLEASE NOTE: Due to the inclement weather forecast for Monday, this event has been rescheduled for 1 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 10.
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.
Weather permitting, the ceremony will be followed by activities for children and their families under the adjacent Sammelman Pavilion in the park. Patriotic crafts and activities will be presented by the St. Charles County Parks Department, St. Charles City-County Library District, and The St. Charles County Veterans Museum. The County Parks Foundation will sell commemorative bricks for the garden’s Memorial Plaza, and the St. Charles County Government Veterans Best Practices Working Group is hosting a “Support Our Troops Care Package Drive” for soldiers overseas.
The public is welcome to attend; refreshments will be served. For more information about the event or care package item requests, visit stccparks.org.
