We have an opportunity with the Veterans Freedom Park in Central Michigan, which is unique for the entire State of Michigan; located across from the courthouse in Harrison. This park will honor our nation’s heroes past and present. This is our opportunity to give back to them. Please see our website at This will be a state of the art park with a welcome center and an education trail that will surround the park with side areas dedicated just for the war eras. This will help educate our students and the public on the sacrifices that our nation’s heroes continue to give for our freedom. We have the ability to seat hundreds of people for our events, with a permanent staging system and a black granite ‘Wall of Tears’ that has the names of our casualties of war engraved from: Clare, Gladwin, Isabella and Midland Counties. This park is a work in progress and we need your help to add statues to our war eras and the daily maintenance cost to keep the park open. This is done entirely by donations and fundraisers. We hold two big fundraisers a year. The first one is the Freedom 5k run/walk held the last Saturday every April in honor of our most recent casualty of the Iraq war; and all those that have given the ultimate sacrifice to this great nation. We also host a golf outing to be held each year at various golf courses. There is an ongoing brick paver campaign for those engraved bricks that will are installed into our walk way; throughout this park that will be visible all year round. We hope that you will consider being a part of our history..
