Come Visit Our Refurbished Park!
We’ve come a long way since a group of veterans and concerned citizens banded together in early 2015 to discuss plan the revitalization of the Veterans Memorial Park on West Quaker Street (next to Arthur’s Hardware) in the Village of Orchard Park.
Our new park was officially unveiled on Memorial Day of 2017 and has been unanimously praised by all who have visited.
Even though the park has been rededicated, we are still in need of funds to pay some of our vendors who supplied the monuments and plants. We also need money to maintain the park going into the future.
How Can You Help?
We are continuing to work on obtaining grant monies from government agencies, foundations, and other charitable groups. Unfortunately, these sources will not meet all of our funding needs.
This is why your support is so important. Your contributions will be essential in helping us achieve our goal of revitalizing this important piece of Orchard Park’s history.
Your contribution can be made below …
On Saturday, August 30, 2017 the Veterans Park Committee teamed up with the Orchard Park High School football teams to launch their joint find raising program — the Quaker Card. This program have been a very successful fund raiser for the Orchard Park High School football program. This year, the Quaker Card will now support two worthwhile organizations — the football program and the Orchard Veterans Park committee. Simply show your card to participating merchants and receive a valuable discount on your next purchase.
You can purchase a Quaker Card for $15 from any OPHS football family, or at Cappelli’s Pizzeria and Arthur’s Hardware.
