October 17th, 2020 was an exciting day for the construction site in Palmdale. Not only was it our first TEAMBuild since the WE Build, but we had our dear friend Megan Hilzendeger and her family come and complete the Tom Hilzendeger Memorial Bench. This is a very beautiful and special addition to our Palmdale Veteran Enriched Neighborhood®, sitting in the foreground of the Veteran Memorial Wall, it is a place where all who loved him can come to visit and honor his memory. Tom was a well-respected and beloved Veteran in the Palmdale Community and we are proud that his family has chosen our Veteran Enriched Neighborhood® to memorialize such an honorable man.
We were also able to gain much ground on the neighborhood wall frontage, with many hands- socially distanced, working to create a beautiful entrance for our Veterans to call home. Finally, an exciting moment was when the team on site installed the flag pole that sits atop the bluff, for all the community and neighbors to enjoy and honor. A flag-raising ceremony will take place at a later date. Thank you Vets 4 Veterans for your support and hard work.
