Athens Memorial Bricks For Veterans Deadline
The Athens Parks and Recreation Department has announced that anyone interested in having a brick placed in the Veterans Park walkway, in honor or in memory of a veteran, must place their order by 4:30pm on March 13, 2015 to be included in the May 17th, 2015 ceremony.
In addition to a brick being placed in the walkway, brick purchasers receive for their veteran an attractive certificate suitable for framing. Veterans Park walkway bricks are $50 each and the city also has available replica bricks for $20 each. Replicas are 1 1/4” x 3” and are designed to take home as a souvenir as part of the ceremony. Order forms are available at the Recreation Department, located in the Athens Municipal Building and are also available on the city’s website at www.cityofathenstn.com/parks/index.html .
“This is a great way to honor a family member or friend,” said Austin Fesmire, Director of Parks and Recreation. “Veterans Park has become one of the most beloved places in Athens and my department is honored to hold these ceremonies as we recognize veterans from Athens and across the United States.”
