American Legion to dedicate memorial

BEACON FALLS — American Legion Post 25 will dedicate the Legion Grove memorial at Riverbend Park on Saturday.

A dedication ceremony starts at 1 p.m. at the park off Nancy Avenue. The public is welcome to attend.

In 2017, the town completed a project to expand and improve the park. The work included about 2,200 feet of improved trails, a ramp with a water break for the retrieval of canoes and kayaks, and low-impact lighting.

American Legion Post 25 donated pine trees for the project, and an area of the park was designated Legion Grove. Post 25 will dedicate a stone monument on Saturday to honor servicemen and servicewomen and to mark the 100th anniversary of the American Legion.
