Three years ago, on April 8, 2008, a resolution was introduced to the Detroit Lakes City Council by veteran Jim Hanlon, calling for the establishment of a new veterans' memorial park.


The resolution was voted on and accepted unanimously, and on Friday -- Veterans Day -- the new Veterans Memorial Park in downtown Detroit Lakes was dedicated.

"We come here on a very special, and historic Veterans Day in Detroit Lakes," said Mayor Matt Brenk.
