An Evening At The Bridge

An Evening At The Bridge
Wednesday, July 3, 2024
Two events!

Beginning in 2019, The Memorial Swinging Bridge Project dedicated itself to lighting the bridge in honor of veterans. At the end of that project, a vault was donated to preserve history for future generations. The vault now contains 100 years of documented history of the bridge and as much information about local veterans as Project members were able to gather.

The Project and the Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring two events that will occur on the same evening. The public is invited to attend either event separately or both, one after the other.

BURIAL AND DEDICATION CEREMONY, WEDNESDAY, JULY 3, AT 5:30 PM, VETERANS MEMORIAL PARK, CORNER OF U.S. 35 AND WASHINGTON STREET.

The Honorable Mary Welker and the Honorable Crystal Kocher will dedicate the vault as it is buried and will also dedicate a cast bronze memorial marker. The marker notes the 100-year history of the bridge, the builder, and the bridge’s place in our county’s history. The Pledge of Allegiance will be led by local Scouts, and prayers will be given by Casey Stephens, Chaplain with the Indiana Guard Reserve. The marker will exhort and remind the community to dig up and open the vault in 2074.

AN EVENING AT THE BRIDGE, WEDNESDAY, JULY 3, AT 6:00 PM, WINAMAC PARK AT THE MEMORIAL SWINGING BRIDGE.

This free family-friendly event will feature music by Hidden In Plain Sight. Bring a picnic, drinks of your choice, lawn chairs, and a light spirit! Desserts will be available from The Mobile Sweet Tooth. The lights that will come on at dusk will round out the evening.

This is the last day of the 4H Fair; the Auction begins at 6:00. Be prepared for lots of traffic!
