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.
