The town of Garner will continue to accept orders for engraved bricks to be placed in the Walkway of Honor at the Garner Veterans Memorial through Sept. 16.
Orders will be sent for engraving afterward with installation planned for late October. Order forms are available at the Garner Senior Center, White Deer Park Nature Center and on the Veterans Memorial website at garnerveteransmemorial.org/brick-orders. Bricks ordered after the deadline will be added during the next installation, which is expected to be late October 2017.
Two sizes are available for purchase. The 4x8 brick can accommodate three lines of up to 16 characters (including punctuation and spaces) and costs $125. The 8x8 brick can hold five lines of up to 16 characters (including punctuation and spaces) and costs $200. A portion of each purchase is tax deductible.
The Walkway of Honor honors military service in any U.S. branch recognized by the Department of Defense, including Reserves and National Guard. Bricks may be purchased in honor or in memory of any military veteran, living or deceased. A Garner affiliation is not required.
The Garner Veterans Memorial is in Lake Benson Park at 921 Buffaloe Road.
