In January 2015, Mr. Carl Quesenberry of American Legion Nordonia Hills Post 801 presented to the Post a request that a memorial to honor veterans should be erected in the Nordonia Hills community. The Post agreed to take on the project.
Mr. Tom O’Brien, chaplain for the Post and active in the City of Macedonia, lobbied Mayor Don Kuchta to permit the Memorial to be erected in the Veterans Park that was donated in 1928 by Colonel E. C .Peck. Mayor Kuchta and the City Council enthusiastically agreed and renamed the park to Veterans Memorial Park and dedicated to all veterans.
In 2016 then Mayor Joseph Migliorini suggested that it should not stop at just a Memorial but that the entire Park should be refurbished to properly honor them. With that, at the request of Post 801, the Advisory Planning Committee was expanded to include the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6768. Dave Pristash, Post 801 commander, was placed in charge of the project.

It is our hope that we can count on you and area businesses to help by donating money and materials to make this park one that Nordonia Hills can be proud of.
