|Veterans Park seeks donations|
|Thursday, May 12, 2011|
The Sumner County Veterans Park has been designed, built and maintained by Chapter 240 of the Vietnam Veterans of America so that all who visit the park can acknowledge and remember the sacrifice of so many.
A memorial located in the center of the park has names inscribed of Sumner County service members who gave the supreme sacrifice and died in the service of their country.
the Sumner County Veterans’ Wall of Honor is located adjacent to the memorial. It is lined with bricks inscribed with the names of men and women from Sumner County and Tennessee who have taken the solemn oath of enlistment or commission and served their country honorably.
Chapter 240 of the Vietnam Veterans of America is expanding the Sumner County Veterans Park to further honor Sumner County’s heroes with a sidewalk and a planter which will be funded by donations. The planter will be fronted with engraved bricks of individuals, companies, organizations names who wish to display their support for the sacrifices of Sumner County veterans. The donation requested is $100.00 per brick.
The sidewalk will have paving stones of differing sizes and for a donation of $250.00 (8”x12”), $500.00 (12”x15”), or $750.00 (18”x18”) the name of the donors will be engraved.
Please join with Chapter 240, Vietnam Veterans of America to ensure that Veterans are not forgotten and that all are honored. Purchase a brick to honor your hero or donate to the fund for a brick or paving stone to expand the park.
