The haulers & truckers in the community pulled together days before the ceremony to haul in $20,000 of aggregates for the parking lot and Veterans Memorial pad donated by Premier Aggregates out of their Horseshoe Bend Pit. Thank you Dobson Gravel, Premier Aggregate, Ryno Engineering, Sam Cookson Trucking, Blue Mule Hauling, and Backcountry Dirt Worx!!
The 35 ft flagpole was installed just prior to Memorial Day, 2022, the concrete footings for the Memorial & Wall of Heroes were laid down on July 18, 2022, and the concrete was poured into the octagon metal mold built by Barreto Mfg on July 28, 2022 - the eight-sided base which will hold the Horseshoe & Eternal Flame turned out amazing!!! Many thanks to Marty Broom, HSB Pastor and Concrete Master, for his incredible concrete work!! Marty will be erecting the concrete Wall of Heroes on October 26. Bo Fisher, Glenn Brooks and Marty Karling of FabCo Welding have completed the massive Horseshoe, with design work and metal donated by Luke Barreto of Barreto Manufacturing. The Horseshoe is gorgeous!!

Thank you Shawn and Uriah Womack for all your expert work and tireless dedication!!. Doug Bergey has dropped everything countless times to stake out, direct and troubleshoot the layout of the parking lot, the Memorial Pad and the Park. Thank you Doug Bergey!!
