One year ago - June 8, 2013 - A Day to Remember

June 8, 2013, will forever be etched in the hearts and minds of our community as we came together to create a legacy rooted in love, hope, and justice.

We were moved by the sacrifice paid by one of our own - an ordinary kid who committed to great things in a foreign land.  The ordinary young man who was Jamie Brendan Murphy went to Afghanistan to help create safe places for children to grow and play, to help build schools, and to support the things we take for granted - freedom, peace, learning, opportunity, and justice.

With a large circle of volunteers, businesses, and organizations, we built a park where children play, where families celebrate, and where loved ones are remembered.   The pictures are testimony to the power of believing in love, hope, and justice.

Thanks and gratitude are extended to all who committed to making a difference in the life of a child buy focusing hope and dedicating love to the legacy that is Corporal Jamie Brendan Murphy Community Park.
