VanGiesen memorial is planned for Evergreen Park

March 9, 2012

It's a community project that everyone wishes never had to be undertaken.
Plans are under way to add a memorial stone in Evergreen Park to honor Staff Sgt. Ken VanGiesen, a Kane native who was killed in Afghanistan last July while serving with the Pennsylvania Army National Guard.
The Eagles Club in Kane has purchased the stone, which is similar to those already located in the memorial area at the "point" at Evergreen Park. The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and other Kane organizations are contributing to cover the cost of the community project to honor VanGiesen.
