Marker/Plaque/Monument Monday


Fulton Park, at Fulton and Franklin.

These monuments were rededicated on Friday, 22 July 2011. Germania Maennerchor club members rededicated this monument in the park, originally placed there in 1987 to honor the German heritage of the Lamasco area and Evansville's West Side.

"The rededication is a celebration of our 50th. consecutive Volksfest," said Paul Bockstege, a past president of Germania Maennerchor. "The monument was originally there to celebrate 300 years of Germans coming to America. And we had some new singers and members put on the monument this year." http://twitter.com/courierpress/status/94560632019492864
