    Memorial Garden

    Reinbold-Novak Funeral Home has created a memorial garden with flag pole to honor all Sheboygan County men and women who bravely served the United States during both peacetime and war. On Memorial Day, Friday, May 30, 2003, we dedicated this area at South Twelfth Street and Spruce Court. Dignitaries in attendance were: State Senator Joe Leibham, The Honorable James Schramm Mayor of Sheboygan, Alderman Daniel Berg and the City of Sheboygan Police Honor Guard. More than fifty veteran honorees representing area Veteran of Foreign Wars Posts were in attendance. An Invocation was given by Deacon Michael Burch, Parish Director of St. Peter Claver Catholic Church.

    Representatives of the United States Army and United States Navy conducted the Military Honors. This detail was supplied by the Military Honors Program through the Wisconsin Department of Veteran Affairs.
