We would like to sincerely thank all the volunteers, local businesses and most of all the families of our fallen heroes for their efforts and sacrifices over the past months and years that have resulted in bringing the first stages of this vision to fruition.
We have a great ceremony planned for the dedication of the first station to Corporal Dumaw. We hope you will bring your family and friends out for a momentous afternoon dedicated to the memory of a local hero who gave his life so that we may all enjoy the freedoms of this great nation. It will be an event to remember.

Wiese said the goal of the Fallen Heroes Circuit Course is to supplement "an already amazing parks system in Liberty Lake."
He appeared before the City Council last year to pitch the project, which eventually earned a place on the list of prioritized capital projects for 2013.
A total of $35,000 in municipal funds are set aside for the first installment of the course in Rocky Hill Park. Wiese and his committee - comprised entirely of Liberty Lake residents - will be charged with generating the remaining $4,432.
Wiese expressed hope that a competitive bid process could leave money remaining to start the second project in Pavillion Park.
"We have such a great community here; the idea immediately brought a lot of support," Wiese said. "The City Council had a lot of positive things to say about it. No one saw it as something that was frivolous."
Wiese is quick to point out that the project is "a true community project developed by community members." The committee has had conversations with local groups like the Liberty Lake Kiwanis and Rotary and Friends of Pavillion Park.
