A Few Accomplishments
Veterans Memorial

The Trumbull 100 spearheaded the construction of the Trumbull County Vererans' Memorial. Several Trumbull 100 members served on the project's
oversight committee. Various local businesses, community groups and area construction unions spent many volunteer hours and donated in-kind services to complete this project. Nearly $500,000 was raised through the sale of bricks (nearly 3,000), pavers (over 500) and sponsorships to purchase the bronze WWII statue and building materials to complete the project. The memorial was dedicated on November 11, 2008 and stands in doentown Warren to honor all veterans.

June 2010 - Burbank Park

The Burbank Park renovation project was completed with over $140,000 in goods and services contributed from many sources including the Warren Athletic League, Mahoning Valley Scrappers and Trumbull 100. The park is located on the northwest side of Warren. Bill Casey led the charge to return Burbank Park to its original form. He called the park
“a gem” now that renovations are finished. Work on the concession stand and four baseball fields began in 2008 and was finished in June, 2010. Security cameras have been installed and vandalism has been halted. Over 500 children from all over Trumbull County regularly play in the park and a statewide baseball tournament was held in the park.
