About Veterans Memorial
The Cairo Community Foundation is raising funds to create a Veterans Memorial Park to honor Veterans and their families. It is designed to inspire patriotism, provide a place for honor and reflection and a place to celebrate our armed forces.
The park includes a 70 foot brick wall where bricks can be purchased and inscribed with a veteran's name and a donor honor section. The park contains five granite pillars honoring veterans. A ribbon memorial garden and 5 granite pillars representing each branch of service.
The Cairo Community Foundation is currently raising funds for the 5 pillars. Each pillar is $15,000. The Foundation is seeking $45,000 to complete the park and install the pillars.
The Foundation is asking for financial donations in any denomination or purchase a brick for your veteran for $150. If you plan to purchase a brick your veteran's information will be requested once you click submit.
