The New Glarus Veterans Park recently received a grant from the New Glarus Community Foundation to complete the fundraising for the last Marker. The New Glarus Community Foundation has been very generous to the New Glarus Veterans Park, and helped fund all of the Markers now at the Veterans Park.

We are still taking brick orders, so please order a brick honoring a Veteran that is a relative or a friend. If you notice that a brick is wrong or a name is missing on an existing marker, please let us know. You may contact Bill Hustad at (608) 576-3025 or email at if you have any questions. The Park Board consists of Bill Hustad, Bill Kuenzi, Ron Kittleson, Doug Oppliger and Linda Stolts.

The Village has put in a concrete walkway into the Park from the Parking Lot, giving handicap accessibility to the Park. We thank all the donors of the previous improvements to the Memorial Park such as the Entrance Marker; Flagpoles; World War II Marker; Korean War/War of 1812/Spanish American War/Civil War Marker; Vietnam/World War I Marker; benches, landscaping, and concrete work.

Veterans Park donations are still needed to maintain the Park and add names to Markers as needed. Monetary donations should be made out to New Glarus Veterans Memorial Park Fund. All donations of any size are welcome from any group, individual, or organization. Please mail to Community Foundation, PO Box 733, Monroe, WI 53566. The New Glarus Veteran's Memorial Park is part of the Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin, which is a 501c3 entity, and therefore all contributions are tax deductible.
