This tribute to Mr. Leon Parnaby comes from
the Parkman Veterans Club

Established in 1946, as Parkman Veterans returned home from WWII, this club was a gathering place
to allow fellow members to recoup from the enduring the stress of such an experience. This club later was evolved into the Middlefield VFW Post 9768, that still exists to date.

Most of the founding members were very active within the Parkman community.
Thanks to all of Parkmanís Veterans
for their service to country and community!
