Orders Being Taken for Memorial Paver Stones

The paver stones are inscribed as directed and installed in the park’s pavilion each spring. Proceeds go toward park maintenance and improvements.

This year the park hopes to meet its goal of 20 new paver stones. The cost of one paver stone is a tax deductible contribution of $100. Orders must be received by May 15, 2013, for installation this year.
