Engravings on Castro Valley Veterans' Memorial
Submitted By Jim Uhlik
The Castro Valley Veterans' Memorial Committee would like to express its appreciation to all who donated and helped build the Memorial for the community. The Memorial still has space available and is accepting donations for Bricks, Service Stones and Major Donors. Since late September 2012, more than 200 new donors' names await addition to the Memorial.
To be included in the Spring 2013 engraving, anyone wishing to include a name should submit details by February 28, 2013. There are options available for all Veterans to be placed on the Service Stones or bricks. Non-veterans may donate a brick to express support for Veterans or for family-recognition.
The Service Stones are filling up; to ensure their loved one is recognized, donors should not delay their request. The Army and Navy Stones are full; however, some of these Veterans have opted to engrave their name on one of the other available Stones. If interested, discuss this option with one of the Committee members.
The Castro Valley Veterans' Memorial Committee will continue to accept donations after February 28, 2013 until all available space is filled. Donations for engravings from March 1, 2013 onward will be engraved in Fall 2013.
