| July 2, 2012

ORLANDO, Fla. – Massey Services has pledged $250,000 to the Central Florida Veterans Memorial Park Foundation for the construction of a memorial at Lake Nona.

“Massey Services is truly honored to support this memorial,” said Harvey L. Massey, chairman and CEO of Massey Services. “We are fortunate to live in the greatest nation the world has ever known and the Central Florida Veterans Memorial Park allows us to remember those who have fallen while fighting for our freedom, liberty and the opportunities that are afforded to us each day.”
 
Of the $1.5 million construction goal, over $900,000 has so far been raised for the memorial. Once that goal is met, the Memorial Park Foundation board will seek another $1.5 million for an endowment for the upkeep of the memorial.
 
The names of over 1,200 fallen soldiers from Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia counties will be inscribed on the four pillars that make up the park. The amphitheater overlooking Lake Nona will be named after the Massey family and Massey Services in recognition of the company’s contribution. 
 
“This memorial will honor Central Floridians who have served our country and sacrificed their lives,” said Jerry E. Pierce, chairman of the Memorial Park Foundation.
