The Johns Creek Veterans Association
is hosting a Memorial Day Picnic on the newly installed entrance plaza of the Veterans Memorial Walk at Newtown Park on May 18. The picnic kicks off at 11 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m.
The picnic, which is FREE and open to the public, features traditional American fare - grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, chips, and other delectables.
Visitors can talk with veterans, and order pavers engraved with the name, rank, branch of service, and conflict or years served for anyone who served in the military.
July 4 is the deadline for ordering pavers
to be installed by the official opening of the Memorial Walk on Veterans Day weekend, November, 2014.
The JCVA is a non-profit organization that encourages patriotism in Johns Creek and provides social activities tailored to veterans. Its major projects are recording oral histories, and construction of the Johns Creek Veterans Memorial Walk, a contemplative tribute to military men and women located next to Park Place, 3125 Old Alabama Road, Johns Creek 30097.
