VICTORY MEMORIAL GROVE
REDEDICATION: DAR MEMORIAL
AND VICTORY MEMORIAL GROVE PARK
You are invited to attend a Centennial Celebration commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the USA entering World War I. This event will honor the fallen soldiers remembered by the DAR monument and park at Victory Memorial Grove in 1921.
In addition to the official ceremony, there will be speeches, proclamations, refreshments and music by the Santa Monica Oceanaires singing good old-fashioned barbershop.
After 97 years, it has been an honor for the Los Angeles-Eschscholtzia Chapter, DAR to restore this DAR WWI Monument to its original luster by well-known art restoration firm, Rosa Lowinger and Associates.
Volunteers from the American Legion Post #43 have been working hard with the city parks and recreation to bring this old park back to life. By clearing, cleaning and planting native and drought resistant plants, we hope to keep this park beautiful for the next 100 years.
Join us on Flag Day, June 14 at 11 AM - for an inspiring afternoon as we pledge to rededicate and remember those who helped to keep our Country free. Friends and family are welcome!
