Veterans and residents gather to see the unveiling of the fifth engraved tablet at Veterans Memorial Park Monday afternoon.

While the threat of bad weather was looming, veterans and community members gathered at Veterans Memorial Park Monday afternoon to see the unveiling of the fifth engraved tablet.

Pastor Tom Zarth, of , gave an invocation and the national anthem was sang by the Four Fellows Quartet, who are all from Richfield to kick off the ceremony. The event also featured guest speaker Dr. Agnes Danzl, an educator and a World War II veteran, who shared stories of learning to fly at a young age.

Thank you on behalf of the HAVM Board to all who attended -veterans, family members, Scouts - both Boy, Cub and Girl, and friends as well as local officials - including Mayor Goettel, Council Members Sue Sendahl and Tom Fitzhenry, and Mr. Hines of the Patch for covering our event and his great photos of the day. We feel it was a wonderful ceremony and are grateful that mother nature cooperated and just clouds kept us from roasting at the event. Lesley Farnham - HAVM Board Member

What a wonderful surprise to attend this year's ceremony and see Dr. Anges Danzl on the program. She was my high school guidance counselor at Richfield High School but she never shared this aspect of her life the students. Thank you for highlighting the contributions of women to the WWII effort.
