Marker/Plaque/Monument Monday

This very nice Veterans Memorial is located on the grounds of the Evansville State Hospital that Becky & I discovered while walking in the park area (a great place for walkers who need the exercise). Through the archway is a dock that goes out over the lake (it can be seen by clicking on the photo to get a larger image). This area seems to always attract people to it.

Through the generosity of Pearl Morris this memorial is to honor the armed forces veterans who receive care at this state hospital.
Below is the dedication plaque of the Veterans Memorial on 03 September 1982.
This plaque is to recognize those who serve the hospitalized Veterans.

Happy Easter!

The Tri-State Genealogical Society wishes everyone a very Happy Easter, today!

The photo below is a giant Easter Bunny at Washington Square Mall where Becky & I have been taking our 45-minute walks. Becky is standing in front of this big stuffed rabbit.
Remember that TSGS will meet at Sirloin Stockade on Tuesday night instead of Willard Library for our Annual Dinner Meeting. It is a buffet style restaurant, so we suggest for everyone to arrive no later than 6PM with the informal brief meeting beginning at 7 followed shortly with our guest speaker Terry Hughes.
