Memorial pavers project underway at veterans home in Anna
The Illinois Veterans’ Home in Anna is partnering with Brick Markers USA for a memorial paver project.
Local residents are invited to purchase bricks that will be used to build a walkway through a sensory garden at the veterans home, which is located at 792 N. Main St.
The memorial paver project is ongoing. Orders continue to be accepted, but can only be processed in lots of 100 bricks.
The first phase of the project ran through early December 2009.
Plans call for the first pavers to be set in early spring of this year.
Information about the project is available by contacting the veterans home at 833-6302.
One hundred percent of the proceeds earned from the project will go to the resident benefit fund at the veterans home.
The benefit fund is maintained for the sole purpose of providing comfort, pleasure and amusement for veterans at the home.
Brick Markers uses a state-of-the-art laser engraving method on high-quality bricks.
