MEMORIAL PARK ADDITIONS PLANNED

 

Plans are underway to install a Fire Department First Responders’ Memorial in Kittery Memorial Park, behind the Town Hall on Rogers Road.  This memorial is expected to be located at the 8 o’clock position (Thresher Monument being located at 12 o’clock).

 

Future anticipated additions include:

 

Police Memorial, to be located at the 4 o’clock position relative to Thresher Monument.
