Here’s a special way to remember a loved one, celebrate a joyous occasion or promote a business or organization.  The Adopt-A-Bench program is not only for the new riverfront but all over Hannibal’s park system.
Construction has begun on the Veterans Memorial. Memorial bricks were placed at the site but have been temporarily moved due to heavy machinery that will be used in the construction. There have been about 350 memorial bricks ordered. The Veterans Memorial and Freedom Bell will be built on Cardiff Hill Overlook, allowing a beautiful view of the Mississippi River. The pathway will consist of memorial bricks. The bricks must have the name of a service member, but does not have to be a Hannibal resident, former or current. The bricks may be purchased by loved ones to honor a member of the military. The customized bricks may be purchased for $125 per brick. Additional donors of $500 or more will be listed on a plaque adjacent to the memorial.
