The John and Annie Glenn Museum Foundation celebrated it’s 10th anniversary Monday.

A "Friendship Garden" was dedicated behind the historical site.

Executive Director Keith Eberly said the garden features a brick walkway with messages for both John and Annie Glenn.

"This has been a fundraiser that we have been running, for the last year. we’ve invited people in the community to purchase bricks for $90 per brick, and they have 3 lines with 20 characters per line to engrave some kind of message on their brick," said Eberly.

The foundation also hosted a veterans recognition program, and an old-fashioned decoration day parade for kids.

Eberly said seeing the community come together on Memorial Day is a good feeling.

"What’s happening today is a great example of what small town life can be all about and the real effort and care that a community such as New Concord, Cambridge and Zanesville and the surrounding areas can really demonstrate," added Eberly.

Monday’s activities were capped off with tours of the historical site and a picnic.
