Dedication held for New London Memorial Park


NEW LONDON - As a small crowd looked on, the new memorial park in New London was officially dedicated Saturday morning.

The park's five granite slabs commemorate local history and the service of past, present and future military veterans.

Organizers hope the park, on Main Street perched above the Crow River dam, will become a place for New London residents and visitors alike to connect with the town's roots and its record of service.
