Veterans' Memorial Park, located on the west side of Perry City Hall, 203 West Polly Street, was constructed with the help of Volunteer labor, including:
Jason Ritter and Ritt's Done Rite Construction; Mike Reader and MGR Custom Carpentry, LLC; Terry Wood; Chuck Mudge of the Perry Lions Club;

RH Electric; Michigan Laborers' Training & Apprenticeship Institute; Jeff's Concrete; Great Lakes Monument; Leland Scott; Andy Hill; and John Jolley.

The flag poles were donated by several organizations and people, including: Past VFW Commander Dave Cords, the Perry Lions Club, VFW Post 4063,
AmVets Post 4064, AmVets Auxiliary Post 4064, Sons of AmVets Squadron 4064, Boy Scout Troop 393 and Cub Scout Pack 393.

As a display of honor and respect, the flags are retired 4 to 6 times a year, depending on the extremity of the weather.
Flags are purchased through the City's Parks & Properties Committee budget.

During the Thursday, March 3, 2016, Perry City Council meeting local veteran John Aldrich and Michigan Chapter Director LeRoy Paige of the
"Honor and Remember" organization spearheaded a discussion regarding addition of the Honor and Remember flag to the flag display
in Veterans' Park.

The flag will be flown under the POW flag in Veterans' Memorial Park.

After the discussion, the Mayor and Council Members decided to join together to purchase a flag and donate any surplus funds to the
Honor and Remember organization to help provide a personalized flag to give to the families of our fallen heroes.
