The Jerseyville Parks & Recreation Department can put your name on a memorial bench at one of three parks in the city.  The head of the department says after completing a trail around Wock Family Lake, she thought it might be nice for walkers to have a place to rest.  The Memorial Bench Program was born from that thought.

Park & Recreation Director Angela Sullivan says the program is just getting started.
