There will be a handicap accessible shuttle running from Cary Academy's parking lot to the event at Veterans Freedom Park. There will also be a police provided crosswalk available to those who wish to walk from the parking lot instead of taking the shuttle.

Toy Soldier Project

The Town will again offer toy soldiers on which citizens can write a soldier's name and place in the memorial as a way to honor all of those who have served in the armed forces. These soldiers will be saved and placed in the monument every Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
