For the past few years, on Veteranís Day, the Kemper Memorial Park Preservation Fund has sponsored a Meet and Greet Event between students and veterans at the Richard M. Kemper Park on the Mamaroneck High School campus. The students benefited tremendously from this event and we hope that the veterans enjoyed it as well. Due to Covid-19, we decided once again to hold the event virtually on our website.

WWII Red Cross Clubmobiles and Kay Cullen

We recently received a digital book from a gentleman in Spain about the WWII Red Cross Clubmobiles. Kay Cullen, one of the Park's honorees, was serving on one when she was killed in a bomb explosion at the hospital in Belgium where she was staying. He also sent an image of a postcard her group sent the family of one of the soldiers.

Fund Raising Drive

Our drive to raise the additional funds to achieve our ultimate goal of full restoration and beautification of Kemper Memorial Park is currently underway. We estimate that it will cost approximately $100,000 to accomplish everything we hope to do. While it would be wonderful to receive the entire amount from one magnanimous donor, we would actually prefer numerous donations in much smaller amounts. So, we are attempting to raise $100,000 through five thousand donations of $20 each. More donations will mean that more people care. That is what we hope to see, and that is ultimately what will best ensure Kemper Memorial Parkís longevity. Please consider joining us in our effort to help make Kemper Memorial Park everything it deserves to be.
