Audio Tour of Garner Veterans Memorial Now Available

This Veterans Day we can't have our traditional ceremony at Aversboro Road Baptist Church, but we are rolling out something special that will be available to you year-round--a new audio tour of the Garner Veterans Memorial at Lake Benson Park.

You can listen as local World War II and Vietnam War veteran Spencer Cardwell guides you around the memorial, which honors veterans and provides historical context for understanding our nation's wars and conflicts. Additional commentary by memorial designer Mon Peng Yueh (a Garner resident) and memorial earthcasts sculptor Thomas Sayre is included too.

So, whenever the weather is nice, head on out to Lake Benson Park and don't forget your earbuds. Use the link below to access the tour on your smartphone, or search "Garner's Station" wherever you get your podcasts (e.g. Apple, Google and Spotify) and listen to this special edition of the program.
