Fallen Heroes Memorial budget, design approved

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — The memorial grew out of a request by Lockport High School 1983 classmates of Patricia Parete to name a park after the Lockport native and Buffalo police officer, who died Feb. 2 from injuries she suffered when she was shot while on duty seven years earlier.

The Common Council ultimately declined to name a park after one person, instead preferring to honor all of those Lockportians who died in the line of duty.

FALLEN HEROES MEMORIAL GROUNDBREAKING • WHEN: 4:30 p.m. Oct. 29 • WHERE: Outwater Park • WHO: The event is open to the public
