Work continues on the new Veterans Park that is being constructed at Dowdy Park in Summerville.

As workers continue to construct the walk areas and prepare footers, officials with the Veterans Park Committee are urging city and county residents to get the names of all veterans from Chattooga County turned in for the wall that will be built to honor all veterans that have served in any branch of the armed forces from Chattooga County.
