King County Councilmember Rod Dembowski
and Veteran's Memorial Chairman Dwight Stevens

By Dwight Stevens, Chair, Shoreline Veterans' Memorial

In answer to many inquires, it is not too late to order memorial bricks to honor American Veterans, men and women, who were honorably discharged or are still serving in the the Army, Marines,, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine or National Guard.

Although we hope to begin construction on Shoreline's first and only Monument this Summer, we need to order and make substantial down payments on the masonry and brick products to be used in the construction of this lasting reminder of the bravery and patriotic service extended by our Veterans.

So far, we have received 65% of the money needed to build a beautiful, circular monument on the green and treed Plaza area, immediately north of the City Council chamber of our City Hall.

Through the efforts of Councilman Rod Dembowski, King County granted us $20,000 and Starr Sutherland, Jr. Post #227 of the American Legion donated $15,000 while several individuals and businesses have given $ I,000 to $3,500 and will have their names or their firm's name engraved on plaques around the center flag pole of the monument.

Brick-pavers sell for only $100 each. Information flyer with application / donation form here. Anyone may honor any veterans from any war with a paver-brick, not just those with Shoreline ties.

Anyone intending to help with the building of our Monument should immediately submit their application and money to the Shoreline Veterans Association, P.O. Box 55193, Shoreline, WA 98155 or as otherwise directed in the application.

ALL DONATION ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE, AS THE VETERANS ASSN. IS A 501 c19 ORGANIZATION. Applications are available in the lobby of City Hall and most Grocery stores in Shoreline as well as online.

If you have questions, contact Dwight Stevens, Chairman, 206-546-2894.
