Foschini Park Memorial

This memorial plaque was erected shortly after World War I. The tree was planted along with the plaque by the citizens of Hackensack to honor those men who died during their service in the Great War.  The small monuments are located on the southern side of Foschini Park with a small tree planted along with it.  When the tree planting and small memorials were put up, the area was probably part of the Oritani Field club.  I played baseball in Foschini Park my entire young life till I was 20 years old (I am 54 years old now - January 2010) and I never knew these memorials were there until last year (2009) when the city manager mentioned it to me. 

Let us never forget the servicemen's sacrifice.
