It’s not every day that something so significant is placed in one of our parks. Today, we want to recognize the efforts of the Valley Garden Club of Bay County which made the commissioning, delivery and installation of this one-of-a-kind metal sculpture possible. They spent three years on this ...project. The metal sculpture represents a pivotal moment in World War II – when U.S. Marines raised the American flag at Iwo Jima in Japan.

The sculpture representing that moment was handcrafted by Matt McPherson of My Metal Medium LLC in Mesick. Today, the Proud Veterans Motorcycle Club escorted the sculpture to the park – and were joined on the last leg of the trip by the Bay City Department of Public Safety and Bay County, Michigan Sheriff's Office.

Local contractor Serenus Johnson Construction installed the metal sculpture at Kantzler Memorial Arboretum, directly across from the Bay County Community Center on JFK Drive. McPherson said the entire thing was hand-cut.

THANK YOU to the Valley Garden Club of Bay County for your efforts to bring this to Bay City to honor our service members.

"On Friday, November 19, 2021- Valley Garden Club of Bay County took possession & delivered, to the Veterans Park Bay City Michigan, a life-size, metal rendering of the Iwo Jima sculpture.

This unique metal sculpture was escorted to the Park by the Proud Veterans Motorcycle Club. ...

Serenus Johnson Construction placed the impressive sculpture on it's permanent home once it was delivered.

This work of art was created in MICHIGAN by Matt McPherson of My Metal Medium located in Mesick.

Valley Garden Club of Bay County is a small garden club that has worked tirelessly for three years raising money to fund such a project of this magnitude.

The club welcomed spectators and live coverage of the procession and placement to raise awareness of this beautiful tribute to our Military Veterans. "
