The park, which will be located on Main Street, is beginning to take shape with plans for landscaping and the first granite piece to arrive later this year. Veterans will be honored and those who gave their lives in conflict will be remembered this Memorial Day with a variety of events planned. In Sikeston, a Memorial Day service will begin at 10:30 a.m. Monday at the Veterans Park, located off of Malone Avenue.
