The Veterans Committee of
Lower Makefield Township is an all-volunteer group whose primary
mission is to raise funds and build a veterans monument.
19th, 2007, a committee was formed to work to bring a veterans monument
to Lower Makefield Township. This website has been set up for the
community to be kept informed of the progress of the project, all
upcoming/past events - and most importantly - ways to get
involved! The monument will remember those with ties to our
township that died in the name of freedom and liberty, and also as a
place to pay tribute to those who served.
On October 15, 2008, the Lower Makefield
Supervisors unanimously approved designating the site of the farmer's
market as a veterans monument.
November 9th, 2008 Pocket
Park was officially renamed VETERANS SQUARE.

local WWII veteran Danny Quill, there was a "Honor Roll" listing the
names of those who served in WWII located at the corner of Edgewood
Road and Yardley Langhorne Road.
This was in the 40's just after World War II...the memorial was taken
down sometime in the 50's and never replaced.
These are photos of the actual "Honor Roll" - it is not an all
inclusive list however, there are many others in our community who
served in WWII.
|It's time for our community to show
their support for our hometown heroes and pay tribute to those who made
the Ultimate Sacrifice.
