On May 14 Chevron awarded a $3,500 check to the Greene County Salute to Veterans Committee to go toward the completion of the Greene County Salute to Veterans Memorial Park.

“The Greene County Veterans Memorial Park will be located on the grounds between the Greene County Tennis Courts and the Greene County Historical Society Museum so all veterans will be remembered,” states a brochure from the Greene County Salute to Veterans. “The circle memorial will include a park-like setting with the memorial, flag poles and granite benches that encourages visitors to walk around and remember.”

Brent Robinson, a policy government public affairs representative from Chevron, coordinated efforts for Chevron employees to partner with the Greene County Salute to Veterans Committee on the Vietnam Veterans Traveling Memorial Wall and now the Greene County Veterans Memorial Park. Robinson presented the check to Rick Black chairperson of the Greene County Salute to Veterans Committee.

According to Connie Hart, secretary/treasurer of the Greene County Salute to Veterans Committee, Chevron not only provides monetary assistance but also helps out with manpower. for these projects.

Hart said, now that the planning phase is finalized, the Greene County Salute to Veterans Committee is promoting the park and selling bricks and benches to sponsor the build and give individuals the opportunity to honor veterans.

“Our goal is to have the park complete by Veterans Day 2020,” she said.
