Presentation of “World Class Memorial” held at the Orlando City Hall Rotunda

The announcement of the fundraising campaign to create a world class Memorial Park which is to be located adjacent to the new VA medical center was made by Jerry Pierce, President CFVMPF, on May 27, 2010. The Veterans Memorial Park at Lake Nona will honor approximately 1,100 Veterans who served in the uniform of our country and paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom representing Orange, Lake, Brevard, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia counties.

This announcement was in conjunction with the unveiling of the
3-D model of the VA medical campus at Lake Nona. The VA medical center is scheduled to open in the fall of 2012 and will include 134 patient beds, a 120-bed community living center and a 60-bed rehabilitation program, serving the approximately 400,000 veterans living in Central Florida.

Distinguished guest speakers at the event included Orlando VA Medical Center Director Timothy W. Liezert, Central Florida Memorial Park Foundation President Jerry Pierce, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orange County Mayor’s Chief of Staff George R. Rodon.
