1Lt. Weston Lee — Hard to believe it’s been a year

Farms and Kolomoki Farms provided many hours of onsite cleaning, clearing, and leveling. Also, a huge thank you to Matt Lee and his team from Lee Memorials, and Tracy Weaver of Weaver Home Repair and his dad, Jimmy, for the long hours they worked on this project at no charge because they felt it was their honor. This would not have been possible without these kind and generous folks.

There is hope to move forward with Phase 2 in the near future. It will include landscaping, a tennis court net, and maybe more playground equipment.

The Weston C. Lee Veterans Memorial Park Committee, would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone involved in this undertaking and encourage everyone to please come out and enjoy this beautiful park.

God Bless America.

We all remember April 29, 2017 as the day that Weston lost his life protecting our freedom. It's hard to believe that it has been a whole year now. Two days after his death, on May 1, his hometown of Bluffton renamed their city park in his memory. Phase 1 soon began with generous donations of good folks from Early County, surrounding counties, and many business owners. Friday, that phase was completed with the placing of the Bronze marker commemorating the park. We want to thank all of you who unselfishly contributed to make this huge task possible. The Early County News kept everyone updated on the progress and needs of the committee throughout the entire year.
