MONETTE, AR (KAIT) - Monette residents honored thousands of veterans with a Veterans Park dedication Monday.
"Well we wanted to not sound like you had to be deceased to be on there," he said. "We wanted anybody that's a veteran to feel free to have their name put on there. Either alive or whether they passed on. So, that's the reason why we named it Veterans Park."
Qualls said the estimated cost to complete the Veterans Park was around $78,000.
"We're so thankful for all of the people who came out to honor this thing," he said. "We're really proud of it. And, I think it's something that will be on this corner and it help in the future to let people know what we stand for."
