The park in Hancock has bared the name Laurn-Grove since it was built in 1947.
Now it has a plaque to tell you why.
A dedication ceremony was held Friday to unveil a memorial to U.S. Naval Reserve Watertender First Class Alvin E. Laurn and Merchant Marine Wiper Robert C. Grove, both local heroes who were killed in 1943 during World War II.
Family members and friends of Alvin Laurn and Robert Grove were also on hand at the ceremony.
The park has a long history of local hockey and is still used today, but Hancock Historian John Haeussler says it’s the memory of where the park got its name that must never be forgotten.
