Tree dedicated to honoring troops

PARKERSBURG – Something new at Holiday in the Park at City Park this year is the Salute Your Soldier Honor Tree.

It is a natural pine tree sitting centrally located near the pavilion, completely bare of any decoration. The idea is to have those with loved ones serving in the military show their appreciation and love of military family and friends by placing ornaments on the tree in their honor.

The park had the sign in place less than 48 hours when the very first ornaments appeared with the notation “Billy A, U.S. Navy.”
