The walking path at the Frederick, Colo., golf course runs between the fourth and fifth holes, and features landscaping and plaques honoring veterans.
A new veterans memorial pathway, including plaques, will be dedicated at Bella Rosa Golf Course in Frederick, Colo., during a ceremony on June 7, the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the Longmont (Colo.) Times-Call reported.
After veteran Rod Snell, a longtime member and volunteer at the club, passed away in 2012, his wife Lynn began working with club General Manager Peter Bain to develop the memorial. Lynn paid for the landscaping and plaques, and the club provided the labor and material for the walking path, which runs between the fourth and fifth holes, the Times-Call reported.
“He was a lot more than a worker,” Bain said. “He was a member, a volunteer and a friend of a lot of people down here.”
Lynn said she hopes members of the public will visit the path to pay their respects to veterans who, like her husband, don’t often get the recognition they deserve, the Times-Call reported.
“I think we can’t do enough for our veterans,” Lynn said. “I think a lot of them are like Rod and don’t like a lot of fuss, but they still deserve our admiration and anything we can do for them.”
