You must have served in Sarpy County, Lived in Sarpy County or gone to school in Sarpy County to qualify. Plaque Cost is $200. Online orders will be charged a $6 processing fee so total cost is $206.
We have the honor of continuing to grow and develop the Veterans Park Project. The Blue Star Memorial is an incredible tribute to those who have served in the Armed Forces from Sarpy County. It is a place where veterans, their families and the citizens of Papillion and Sarpy County can come to reflect, remember and find peace. It is a great source of pride for our community and Sarpy County.
Park elements take full advantage of the strong axial view from the corner of Monroe and Halleck Streets. The entrance gateway is flanked by two columns and short walls on either side of the sidewalk. They walls are made of natural stone and include signage identifying Veterans Park. The Wooden pergola provides shelter and seating opportunities within the park's plaza. Memorial benches have been donated to memorialize veterans who we have lost and have been donated by their families along with wooden benches donated by City organizations who support veterans in our City.
We have plans in place for continual improvement and maintenance of this park. As the names on these walls continue to grow, so shall our adaptation and improvement. We hope to have an interactive database for all of the names listed on the Walls completed by mid 2021 and an interactive Kiosk installed by the end of 2021 as well as electricity installed so that the walls can be lit up at night.
