A memorial wall dedication ceremony was held on Friday, May 2, 2014 for turning over the honorary wall built by the Canyon Club to the City of Page. The official dedication of the wall that honors our military and service personnel who have lost their lives in the line of duty will be on Memorial Day, at 10am.

During this same time, the City of Page made a decision to remove the lawn in front of City Hall, which meant that the Club found the perfect location for such a project.

The uniquely designed Memorial Plaza project includes a memorial wall, which will feature plaques for local military, police, firefighters, and Emergency Medical Service personnel who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

The plaza also has an interpretive area which will feature beautiful photographs of local attractions, an illustrated timeline describing the history of Page, a regional map, flagpole, and a stage area for demonstrations and presentations.

Another memorial feature is a paver section to enable other local non-profit organizations to sell engraved bricks to citizens to honor loved ones. Proceeds from the sales of bricks will support the cost of the memorial

This new facility is designed, constructed and funded entirely by the Canyon Club and will be complete and formally dedicated to the City on Friday, May 2, 2014 at 10:00 A.M.

Memorial Day Ceremony at 10am

The City of Page is also planning another ceremony on Memorial Day Weekend. All family members of those who have been honored will be in attendance as well as several dignitaries from the City, county, regional, and state; including our Page City Mayor Diak; Todd Brendall, Supervisor of the Park Service; Deputy Sheriff Jim Dirscool; and County Supervisor Lena Fowler.
