At Carrot-Top, one of the things we’re proudest of is being able to help communities with their town parks and memorials. Recently, we were able to do just that with Tyler Park in Dunn, NC.
Dunn is a town of about 10,000 people in the central part of the state; Tyler Park became the town’s first community park when it was constructed in the late 1950s. Tyler Park now boasts three new athletic fields, tennis and shuffleboard courts, a splash pad water play area and a “miracle” sports field designed specifically for special needs children.
Over the years, Tyler Park has been renovated and improved on, and today a Veteran’s Memorial Garden is the park’s proud centerpiece.Read More

The Historic Battle Grove Cemetery in Cynthiana, KY doesn’t let being in small town keep their patriotism on a small scale. Established in 1868, the cemetery has an extensive history and is the resting place of veterans who lived and died more than a century ago. For the past 15 years, local Boy Scout and Girl Scouts troops, along with their troop leaders, have placed Carrot-Top cemetery flags on the gravesites of veterans as a part of the Veteran’s Day program. According to Cemetery Superintendent Billy Grayson, “It’s thrilling to see boys and girls of all ages place flags on the graves of those who served our country long before the children were born. Having them here is like bringing the future to visit the past”. Boy and Girl Scout Troop Leaders thought the project would encourage community involvement and awareness, educate the scouts, and inspire civic responsibility.Read More
