The Mini-Cassia Chamber Ambassadors hosted a ribbon cutting at a new Veteran’s memorial at Kiwanis Park, next to the airport in Burley.
The Kiwanis Club of Burley and the Mini-Cassia Veterans recently recruited help from local businesses to replace a stone monument that had fallen into disrepair. Zane Gillette of Streamline Precision was kind enough to donate a new stone with engravings that honor all branches of the military and all who have served and continue to serve. Concrete was also donated by Kloepfer Concrete and labor was donated by Thompson Concrete.
With the help of students from the Mini-Cassia Tech Center and their instructor Casey Jones, the Sherman Tank was repainted using paint donated by Pro Paint in Burley. Both of these projects were a nice improvement to the Park.

They make floral arrangements for any occasion, offer custom potting services, landscaping services and even carry fresh cut Christmas trees and wreaths. They are committed to offering only the finest floral arrangements for any occasion backed by service that is friendly and prompt.
