The Park of Honor will take place at Barnard Park, but with a different format than in previous years. Two "monuments" will be erected in the park on which a Veterans information will be displayed. The Veteran's name, service dates , branch of service and sponsor will be placed on the monument. In addition to the recognition of the Veteran , fifty flags will be erected immediately behind the "monuments". In past years the Pittsfield Kiwanis club coordinated the Park of Honor in Sheffield, however, this year their club is focusing on their efforts in Pittsfield.
There is no charge for participating in this Park of Honor.
Please fill out the information below-we will create a laminated card for the Park of Honor from the information you submit to us.
Please note, if there are multiple sponsors for a Veteran we will honor those requests as space provides. You may sponsor a Veteran, as well as an active duty service member.
Herrington's donated all of the materials needed for the building of the "monuments". The Sheffield Historical Society is a proud sponsor of the Park of Honor as we celebrate 100 years of Armistice Day 1918-2018
Please join us on Sunday November 11 at Barnard Park, as we honor our Veterans. Coffee, hot cider and treats will be available from 8 am -11 am.
