Cornerstone Military Memorial to be expanded

Eugene Weldon’s dream of a veteran’s memorial came to fruition in 2018 with the completion of the Cornerstone Military Memorial. 

Right after that, he began plans for a first responder memorial for Jack County residents who serve on the medical front lines. Work on the project was delayed because Weldon had heart surgery.

The expanded memorial, to be renamed Jack County Memorial Park, will have a groundbreaking tentatively scheduled for Sept. 11.

“The memorial I hope to keep rustic just like the first one,” Weldon said. “It will be south of the gazebo, but be built on higher ground.”
