Lynhurst opens Veterans Memorial Garden

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Veterans Memorial Garden at Lynhurst 7th & 8th Grade Center opened today.

A group of 7th and 8th grade students in the Lynhurst Environmental Action Posse worked with a teacher to create the garden.

In the Wednesday ceremony, a student orchestra, color guard and show choir performed for a packed house of veterans and their families.

The teacher in charge of the garden says that he has family bonds driving him.

“I think of my dad who served, I think of all my family members. I think of people like Josh Bleill. When I read his book, it literally inspired me to be a better man and a better husband,” said teacher Christopher Moore.

The garden is expected to be completed this fall.

The last piece is a sculpture the students hope to place in a prominent position in the garden.

The group also plans to add an eco-trail on the property and other environmental projects in the future.
