The Community Foundation of Dunn County is currently accepting requests for new bricks for the Dunn County Veterans Memorial located on Historic Second street in downtown Menomonie. The cost is $250 per brick.
This annual program began on Flag Day, June 14, 2000 when more than 300 bricks were dedicated and the monument unveiled. The monument honors military veterans from any branch of service during any era. There is no residency requirement, and currently more than 500 veterans are honored.
The Dunn County Veterans Memorial Committee of Main Street, Inc. is responsible for the memorial and programs relating to it. CFDC coordinates the brick program and manages the Dunn County Veterans Memorial Endowment Fund, established to maintain the memorial area.
A donation of $250 or more received before the Feb. 1 deadline purchases one brick inscribed with a maximum of 57 letters, numbers and/or spaces. For info or to receive an order form, contact the Foundation at 715-232-8019 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. All new bricks will be formally dedicated at the Flag Day Ceremony on Thursday, June 14, at the Veterans Memorial in downtown Menomonie.
