DEADLINE FOR VETERAN'S MEMORIAL PAVER ORDERS - AUGUST 1, 2016

Construction continues on downtown's Memorial Plaza.

Construction continues on downtown's Memorial Plaza.

The order deadline for memorial pavers has been announced... Monday, August 1, 2016.  This allows time for the pavers to be engraved and installed as construction of the entire Memorial Plaza continues. 

There has been some question as to whether the pavers must contain the names of veterans who have died in combat, or whether they must contain the names of anyone who has served in the military.  The answer is no.  Pavers may be purchased by anyone, and engraved with any wording that honors veterans.

Many people have had pavers engraved with a veterans name, branch of military, and years of service.  Others have simply stated, "Thank You Veterans!  The <Name> Family."  Others have stated, "God Bless America.  The <Name> Family." There are lots of options, and we can help you with wording if you stop by the Foundation office.

Veterans Memorial Pavers may be purchased at the Morton Community Foundation office, 105 E. Jefferson Street.  You may download a paver donation form by clicking HERE, filling out the form, and bringing it, along with your check, to the Morton Community Foundation office.  You may place a donation and paver order online by clicking HERE.
