Windermere Veterans Project

$50 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 1 person in 10 months

Dear Friend,

A partnership between the Town of Windermere and the Rotary Club of Windermere is creating a Veterans’ Memorial around the flag plaza in front of Town Hall.   Scheduled for installation on Veterans day 2017, this installation was inspired by the vision of `Mr. Bill Criswell, the creator of the iconic veterans “Home At Last Project”. The cooperative venture will erect six pedestals on the outer edge of the town flag plaza.   Five will bear a bronze plaque recognizing one of the branches of our Military. The sixth  pedestal presents the Great Seal of the United States with an inscription declaring our respect for the men and women who have served and are serving in our armed forces. 

To complete this project will need to raise about $25,000.  We ask that you consider helping fund this memorial through a tax deductible contribution. Contributors of $1000.00, $2000.00 or more, will have their names or those of their designee(s) recorded on  permanent bronze plaque that will be part of the installation. All contributions are welcome. Major Project sponsors should contact us for information.

 Are you a veteran? Do you have a business, parents, siblings, relatives or employees to whom you would like to show your appreciation for service and sacrifice? Take this opportunity to create a lasting declaration of appreciation to the men and women who protect our freedoms through your contribution.

The dedication of the Veterans’ Memorial will be during the Windermere Veterans’ Day celebration on November 11, 2017 at 11:00 AM.  A day of recognition and celebration is planned.  A 40 piece band, members of the Military, Guest speakers, Veterans past and present, food and entertainment... all will make up a day to remember. Please join us.

We have worked hard to bring this event to pass. We have met our funding goals for the installation and dedication of the Veterans Memorial. We continue however, to raise funds that will go to Veterans Projects like: Home at Last Project, Inc. - mortgage free custom homes for disabled veterans, USO, and service animal support programs.

We hope you will consider a contribution before Veterans Day on Nov. 11. Join us at 11:00 on the 11th for the town dedication.
