Battle Ground Bricks and Banners program, which honors local men and women who have served in the U.S. military, is accepting orders through March 1.
The bricks and banners will be installed at the Battle Ground Veteran Memorial in Kiwanis Park on Memorial Day, May 29.
The cost of an engraved and installed brick is $250. Proceeds support the ongoing maintenance of the memorial, which was funded and constructed through donations.
In 2021, the city council launched the Main Street Military Banner program, which honors veterans, active-duty personnel, and those who have chosen to enter the military. Banners featuring individual honorees are displayed along Main Street each year during May and through the third week of June.
The cost to purchase a customized banner is $250 and includes the production, installation, and display of a banner along Main Street during the initial year of purchase. After the display period ends, the banners are returned to the purchaser, or they can be reinstalled at the request of the owner during subsequent years’ display periods.
Detailed information about the Bricks and Banner program, including order forms and sample images, are available at www.cityofbg.org/Bricks-Banners.
