|History Of Little Jon Memorial Park
30-Acres of land was purchased specifically for and in memory of Jonathan James Howe by his grandparents, Alvin and Jean Howe. Jon was born in 1994 and was lost to those who love him in 2003 in an accident while riding on a golf cart. Jon was a very happy and energetic little boy who loved parks and playing with other children. He played the piano, and enjoyed going to church and church functions with his grandma. He felt closest to his grandpa while riding in the dump trucks and watching him build roads. Jon used to play on the land that is now the location of Little Jon Memorial Park and The"Wall That Love Built".

Little Jon Memorial Park offers 9- large cabins
8 small cabins. It offers RV spaces with and without electric as well as Tenting areas. A Shower House is also available. The Cabins were given in support of those suffering from cancer and those that have survived cancer. There is plenty of picnic and playground area, as well as ball diamonds and soccer fields. There is a walking path, and soon we hope to add a BMX bike track. The cabins can be rented for family gatherings, reunions or just a weekend get away. The proceeds go toward the up keep of the park.
