UPDATE: We are looking into quotes to replace the pavers and the lighting as well, once we recieve those we will add them to the fundraising goal. Please note that any money raised will go directly from GoFundMe to the American Legion Post 150 to then distribute to the proper contractors. American Legion Post 150 has let us know that once we have reached our fundraising goal and the money is disbursed they will take care of providing a receipt for any donations so that any donation made IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE! I really appreciate everyone who has stepped up so far, and the American Legion Post 150 for working with me. As we get more information on the additional repairs, we will pass that along.
ORIGINAL POST: I have contacted a company who is willing to provide restoration and preservation of the Veteran's Memorial at the intersection of Sterling Boulevard and W Holly Avenue. The proposed restoration will focus on the memorial itself, attempting to remove as much of the stain from the marble as possible, and then sealing the marble to prevent further damage. The quote we have received is for the amount posted as the fundraising goal.
Our Veterans have given the ultimate service, and some regrettably the ultimate sacrifice, to our community. Please consider donating to this effort to restore a memorial in their honor, and let's show our Veterans that Sterling stands with them. Any amount helps, and no donation is too small. I appreciate you taking the time to consider this request, and hope you will join me.
