Words can not describe my enthusiasm going into this project. From day one, I’ve been doing my best to make my dream become a reality and I won’t stop until it does. As a self proclaimed patriotic American, I have a great respect for the Veterans of this country and from that deeply rooted respect, I felt obligated, for my eagle project, to recognize their sacrifice and all they do and have done to keep this great nation of ours safe.
So my vision is to create a Veterans Memorial Tribute at the Blackstone Town Common. It will consist of a patio of custom engraved brick pavers recognizing service members from all branches of the military, a noble engraved memorial prominently displayed on the patio in front of an illuminated American Flag with granite bench seating along the sides. This newly designed Veterans Memorial Project will provide for a dignified area to reflect upon all those who selflessly serve to protect our freedoms as well as enhance the focal points of the area. The Veterans Memorial Tribute will reside next to the existing WW I memorial and renew awareness to the common.
It is my hope for this project to become an outstanding public landmark and a source of pride for our community for generations to come. Although a ‘monumental’ endeavor, I have no doubt that it will be achieved through the generous support of the community and our local businesses. This project is no easy feat but I know that with support from people like you this dream will become a reality.
Everyone can be involved in this project. Please go to the Donate/’Buy a Brick’ page to read how you or a loved one can become a permanent part of this enduring tribute.
