This Monday, Whitefish Bay will celebrate Memorial Day by dedicating the Veterans Memorial & Gardens at Armory Park. The public is invited.
Officiated by Brigadier General Dunbar & Rev. Ray Stubbe, the ceremony begins at 11am.
Armory Park is located on the corner of Lake and Henry Clay.
As a follow up to the Armory Park dedication, the Friends of the Whitefish Bay Library has arranged to have noted Wisconsin author, James Campbell, give a talk on Monday, June 1st at 7pm.
James Campbell, author of The Ghost Mountain Boys will discuss the book and expects to be joined in this talk by two Red Arrow veterans from the Oconomowoc area. The Red Arrow Division, more formally known at the 32nd Division, was principally made up of soldiers from Wisconsin and Michigan.
So why this guy? The WFB Armory was part of the 32nd Division. Ever notice all those Highway 32 signs on Lake Drive? The full name is the 32nd Division Memorial Highway.
Those little red arrows on the sign? The 32nd Division's insignia was a red arrow.
The new Armory Park, from above, looks like an arrow.
I hope to see you Monday & Tuesday night!
