Evansdale Park Board to hold special meeting and vote on memorial for murdered cousins


The Evansdale Park Board will hold a special meeting Saturday afternoon where members will vote whether to approve the park honoring Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins.

The meeting will be held at 3:00 PM at Evansdale City Hall.

Dona Frickson, president of the Evansdale Chamber of Commerce, said Friday she hopes everything passes.

Frickson said the people in the community have been phenomenal by offering financial contributions and volunteering their time to make sure the girls are not forgotten.

Earlier this week, KWWLs Kera Mashek reported on a significant donation that will be used to fund a gazebo in memory of the girls.

The Evansdale Park Board voted earlier this month to name the park at the lake Angels Park. An adjacent lakeside trial is called Trail of Angels.

The girls were last seen in July riding their bikes by the lake. Their bodies were found in December in a wooded area.
