BrightView Enhances Landscape of Veterans Memorial Park

Project honors Army Air Force Staff Sgt. Carl M. Shaffer

Veterans Memorial Park Clean-up
BrightView team member participate in a clean-up event at the Veterans Memorial Park in Pottstown, Pa.

Veterans Memorial Park in Pottstown, Pa., is being revitalized thanks to the work of BrightView and other local businesses. BrightView proudly donated landscape services to the memorial park, including mulching, weeding, and general improvements to the grounds. 

This project honors Army Air Force Staff Sgt. Carl M. Shaffer, a Pottstown native who served in World War II. Staff Sgt. Shaffer’s remains were recently identified and returned for burial in his hometown. The project also will honor Gabriel “Gabe” Joseph Fieni, who was the founder of the Pottstown World War II Memorial. Fieni served as a U.S Army medic in World War II.

“Our BrightView team was grateful for the opportunity to be a part of something as moving as a veterans memorial park,” said Zach Kolb, Norristown Account Manager. “It was very satisfying knowing that BrightView’s donation will have such an important impact on the community.”

The clean-up project is leading up to the fourth-annual Pottstown Veterans’ Community Day Sept. 28. The event will honor local veterans and celebrate their service to the country.
