Veterans Dwight Stevens and the late Frank Moll had a dream and that dream was to create a plaza to celebrate all veterans past, present and future.

Thanks to the City of Shoreline, King County, 4 Culture, the Starr Sutherland Jr Post 227 American Legion, the Shoreline Veterans Association, and so many others, the Shoreline Veterans Plaza will be dedicated on Saturday, May 21 at 1:00pm.

The Shoreline Veterans Plaza is located adjacent to the Shoreline City Hall Council Chamber. It is 32 feet in diameter and is bordered by a five foot wide concrete sidewalk.

On the sidewalk are five benches donated by Harley O’ Neil, King County Voiture 75 of the 40 ET, Shoreline Elks 1800, Sheet Metal Workers Local 66, and the Shoreline Rotary Club.

Also surrounding the bricks are five obelisks honoring various branches of the armed services. On Monday and Tuesday, May 16 and 17, 252 bricks were engraved with names provided by project donors.

There will be a short program followed by light refreshments. Music for this event is being presented by the Shoreline Concert Band under the direction of Mr. Ken Noreen.

This event is sponsored by the City of Shoreline and the Shoreline Veterans Association. For more information, call 206-546-2894.
