LANCASTER, NY - There are a few additions to a park honoring American patriots in Lancaster.
Russell Salvatore held a ceremony Thursday dedicating three new additions to his "Patriots and Heroes Park" near Russell's Steaks, Chop and More. They're entitled "The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier," "A Tribute to America," and "A Tribute to the Purple Heart."
He says now the park is complete.
"I love the idea, it will be here forever and ever. I've been fortunate enough to get permission from the state of New York to be buried in my park, and I'm not afraid to die because of that , because I'll be with so many beautiful friends of mine that'll say, 'Hiya Russ! I'm going to have a drink on you.'"
Salvatore says he hopes to make the park an educational spot for local kids to learn about history.
