Group proposes memorial park in Oconomowoc
A committee has formed to develop a Memorial Park in the City of Oconomowoc into a place to honor veterans. The committee is working with the local VFW, Vietnam Veterans of America and American Legion on the project.
The committee is also proposing the park be named Admiral Dirk Debbink Veterans Honor Park and Memorial Garden.
Debbink is a longtime Oconomowoc resident, OHS graduate, has served the community in various ways including on the School Board.
The city's Park and Recreation Board has approved renaming the park. Officials were set to discuss more on this at Tuesday's Common Council meeting.
