The 60th anniversary observance of the cease-fire in Korea Saturday in Krog Park was a success because of the tremendous cooperation given to the Washington Chapter 324 of the Korean War Veterans Association, sponsor of the event. The weather also cooperated with temperatures in the high 70s.

The city of Washington really went all out to assist the Korean War veterans. Mayor Sandy Lucy’s administration did everything that was requested of the city, and in a very efficient manner. Darren Dunkle, parks department director, met every challenge in moving the event from Fifth Street, as originally planned, to a shady area in the park next to the Korean War Memorial. His department and other city workers set up the speakers’ platform on grass next to the memorial, hauled and set up the chairs and tables, took care of electrical power for the PA system and handled other chores as needed.
