The public is invited to join Mayor Chris Beutler, Senator Ben Nelson and Congressman Jeff Fortenberry in observing the 22nd anniversary of the Veterans Memorial Garden in Antelope Park at a ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 11.

"We are pleased that Mayor Beutler, Senator Nelson and Congressman Fortenberry can join us in paying tribute to this spot made sacred by the sacrifices of America's Veterans."
