Dedicated on November 11, 2009. Located in Sherwood Park with the murmur of the Kalamazoo River in the back-ground, the Greater Plainwell Veterans’ Memorial is a place of quiet reflection and respect. Sponsored by Plainwell Memorial Post 9377 – Veterans of Foreign Wars. For more information on how to support the Veterans Memorial click here. Interested in ordering a brick – Brick Order form.
To leverage the fundraising efforts for the construction of the Veterans Memorial, Plainwell artist and resident, Charlie Wakefield created a 10 foot sand castle weighing in at 20,000 pounds that attracted spectators from near and far. The sculpture was housed temporarily inside the former Plainwell Paper Mill.
