As I continue to learn more about what's going on with our downtown, I was happy to see that the current construction on Livermore Avenue for the new Stockmen's Park. It took a little bit of digging on the internet to find out the history of the park, and why it was named after the Stockmen.

The research was well worth the effort. It's a win-win for everyone involved. The Stockmen finally get a long-promised park, housing for veterans and seniors will be built, and we will have a nice gathering place to honor our veterans and the contributions of the Stockmen's Association.

Hopefully it will be complete for Thanksgiving next year!
