The   City   of   Halsey   is   honored   to   have   been   a   recipient   of   a   $28,515   grant   from   the Oregon   Parks   and   Recreation   Department   Veterans   &   War   Memorials   Grant   program, as   well   as   a   $500   grant   from   the   Central   Linn   Community   Foundation   to   rejuvenate   the Veterans Memorial Park located at 773 West 1st Street. The   project   involved   removing   the   maple   tree   from   the   park,   installing   a   new   circular seating   area   with   benches,   a   new   flag   pole   and   lighting,   and   a   new   monument   in   the center   of   the   park.      The   unhealthy   trees   in   the   planting   strip   on   the   south   end   of   the park   were   replaced,   and   new   planters   were   added.   The   new   monument   honors   the service   of   Veterans   from   the   Central   Linn   Community:   Halsey,   Brownsville,   and   Shedd, and the surrounding rural area.  The   City   of   Halsey   is   grateful   for   the   partnership   of   the American   Legion   Post   184.      We also   thank   the   Brownsville   Community   Foundation,   the   Central   Linn   Lions   Club,   DLF Pickseed   USA,   Georgia   Pacific,   Alyrica,   Grace   Bible   Community   Church,   the   Halsey Shedd   Rural   Fire   Protection   District,   and   the   Spirit   of   the   Valley   United   Methodist Church   for   their   support   for   the   project.   The   project   budget   also   included   volunteer hours,    community    donations,    in-kind    donations,    and    city    contribution    of    labor, equipment and funds. The   memorial   was   dedicated   on   November   4,   2017   with   over   100   guests   in   attendance.
