Shown are U.S. Army Major Frank Jarrett, John Minchew and members of Boy Scout Troop 1000 at the Flag Day ceremony held at the new Plantation Park in Pecan Grove.

In an effort to honor the heroes of their community the three homeowners associations and the MUD of Pecan Grove welcomed guests to the opening ceremonies of Plantation Park.

The park is located near the entrance of the Pecan Grove subdivision, just east of the Country Club. As usual, on Flag Day, the patriotic neighborhood was ensconced with American Flags. During the ceremonies retired Major Frank Jarrett, a neighborhood resident, welcomed guests.

In his greeting he reminded attendees of the price of freedom, from Yorktown to Kabul and all battles in between. After his remarks Boy Scout Troop 1000 posted a Texas flag that had been flown over the State Capitol donated by Senators Haggar, Howard, and Huffman and an American flag that had been flown over our Nation’s Capitol donated by Congressman Pete Olsen.

The Plantation Memorial Park is dedicated to the all those who have served their country with honor and bravery in the ever present fight for freedom in our democracy. A flag for each branch of the military as well as the state and federal flags are raised and lowered each day at the park.
