2023 Ribbon Cutting Groundbreaking - Menomonie Lion's Club
The Menomonie 🦁 Lions have begun a rejuvenation project of their Lions Memorial located In Wakanda Park at the corner of Pine & Game Park road. The existing memorial was over 60 years old and was due for upgrades. The club opted to move to a more hard scape project similar to local veterans memorials to limit future maintenance.
The full project will take about 2 years to complete featuring the 2 existing pillars as the entry into the new memorial. It will initially consist of a 24’x30’ elliptical concrete pad with 2 black granite monuments that will have passed names of Lion members, 2 black granite benches, and a sitting concrete Lion statue as the main feature. Initial concrete work is expected to be done the week of September 25th by Accurate Construction.
Other features will include 3 flagpoles with flags ( US, State, & Lions). An ADA compliant concrete ramp from street through the pillars to the memorial platform. Still in the design phase is a possible archway from pillar to pillar. Lighting and adding a couple of shade trees will also be incorporated.
Eligibility to have a Lion’s name etched on the monument stones, one has to have either served as a Menomonie Lion for 15 years in good standing, or have passed away while being an active Lion member.
