We would like to ask for your help with our ‘Brick Paver Campaign’.These memorial bricks will be located throughout our whole park as a permanent reminder of those veterans that served this great nation. There is no better way to honor your veteran or service member than by purchasing a brick for them! This would make a great gift. The bricks will be placed throughout the walkways and of the war era's. A single 4”x8” brick can be engraved with your choice of wording and possible logo if space allows, for a donation of $100 or more. A single 8"x8" brick can be engraved with your choice of wording and possible logo, (if space allows, of your choice for a donation of $200 or more. Each line will contain a maximum of 20 characters and the engraving will be filled with black.
Purchasing a Paver ...
Brick pavers may be purchased to honor ANY American who has served, or is currently serving in the United States Armed Services. The Veteran NEED NOT be a resident of Harrison, or the State of Michigan to purchase a paver. Anyone can also purchase a brick in support of our veterans and the park.
Inscription brick orders MUST be received by January 29th of each year to be installed before Memorial Day.
The current cost of a 4"x 8" brick, with 3 lines of inscription (20 character maximum, including spaces) is $100. The current cost of a 8"x 8" brick, with 6 lines of inscription (20 character maximum, including spaces) is $200. All proceeds go to the Veterans Freedom Park of Clare County, to be used for future paver and memorial expansion in the park.
The first line consists of the veteran's name. The second line is the branch of service (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard) and rank, rate or unit (if space allows). Abbreviations are recommended. The third line lists the years of service (War Service and, or Ship Service may be included if space allows.) If the person is still serving, just list the date service began. (This is an example it is not required that you follow the exact description.)
