BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – The City of Palm Bay will hold a ceremony on Saturday, November 16, to officially rename West Oaks Park for the late former Deputy City of Palm Bay Police Chief Lynne Nungesser.
Nungesser, the first female police commander in Brevard County, passed away this past Mother’s Day at the age of 63.
Nungesser worked for the City of Palm Bay for more than 40 years and was also a great supporter of the Police Athletic League organization and worked to help assemble a baseball team to represent the City of Palm Bay.
She loved the police department and her many colleagues and friends, and she also loved spending time at the ballpark.
The park renaming ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. at the park’s front entrance sign as more than 50 of Lynne’s family members plus city employees and officials are expected to participate.
Palm Bay West Little League will be playing games during the event and there will be a free bounce house for kids to enjoy. Palm Bay West Little League will also host a cookout with all proceeds benefitting the league.
At 11:30 a.m. there will be a softball game featuring a Nungesser–Manion Family team versus a team of Palm Bay Police Officers and City Employees.
The public is invited to attend the renaming ceremony, cookout, and baseball and softball games.
