The Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Department of Conservation and Recreation invite you to a rededication of the USS Kearsarge Memorial on Tuesday, June 14th at 11:30am at Marine Park. Free ice cream from the Cookie Monstah Truck compliments of Hanscom Federal Credit Union.
Last June, the old anchor at Marine Park – aka the Kearsage Memorial – dedicated to Naval Veterans of the Civil War, the Spanish War and WWI – was removed for some much needed refurbishing!
Back in 2021, the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council received a grant for $75K to renovate the memorial – and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) announced it would match the CPA funds for this memorial!
