JACKSON COUNTY, Ala. — American Legion Post 30 and it’s Scottsboro Auxiliary announced it has donated $7,000 to the Veterans Memorial Park of Jackson County (VMPJC).
The American Legion Post is one of the first organizations to participate in the new Sponsor program the Veterans Park has instituted. As such, $4,000 will Sponsor the Park’s Donor plague, $3,000 will Sponsor the Park Entrance sign and their name will be attached showing them as a Sponsor on each feature.
There is no limit to the number of sponsors for the 6 Monuments, the Donor plaque or the Park Entrance sign. The VMPJC is very appreciative of this significant donation and will use it to continue to make progress toward completing this phase of the Park’s construction.
