Foundations Take Shape!

The foundation for the services panels has been poured and the layout of the tribute is beginning to take shape. As the weather improves this spring, construction will move ahead. We Still Need Your Help! Any and all contributions are appreciated, we are still short of our fundraising goal. Recognize a veterans service with a tribute brick, or make a donation. With your help we can drive to completion, and launch with our dedication in July!
