Adopt-A-Veteran Memorial Plaque
Military squares are memorial spaces throughout the city dedicated to Manchester residents who lost their lives while serving their country. All fourteen squares have a plaque honoring the veteran who made the ultimate sacrifice.
In a partnership between Ward 10 Alderman, Bill Barry, and the City, the Parks, Recreation, and Cemetery Division made the plaques available for adoption for $300. The donation goes for cleaning, restoring, and preserving the plaque and mounting post, if applicable.
Below is an example of before and after the restoration process.
- Francis P. Lally (1919-1943), adopted by Margaret-Ann Moran and Joyceann Fitzgerald-Guill
- Robert W. Lewis (1922-1942), adopted by Water Works
- Roger B. Cote (1930-1950), adopted by Jason Ientile
