Vernon Street Plaza where there will be a blessing of the park, a few brief statements by residents and organizations involved in the revitalization as well as a few short words from the niece of Robert McGrath. During the event, residents will then be given the opportunity to decorate memorial rocks to add to the park in honor of their loved ones.
