Here, L to r, viewing that design are Joe Deprizio of Park Ridge, a WWII Army vet who served in the Pacific; Jake Gallagher of the Marine League; and Maine Township Clerk Gary K. Warner who was part of the color guard.
As part of the full weekend of activities which included a fundraiser movie, a USO style concert and afternoon of storytelling, the City of Park Ridge came together the morning of Saturday, Aug. 15 to honor the memory of 47 men from Park Ridge who died serving their country in World War II. All the events celebrated the 70th Anniversary of the end of WWII with Japan's surrender. The memorial originally placed on Devon Avenue by the American Legion in 1947 was moved to South Park, Cumberland and Devon Avenues, and given a more public viewing place. The Spirit of '45 committee raised funds for the improvements and will continue fundraising to complete the project in the coming months per a design done by the Park Ridge Park District.
