The Shoreline Veterans Association (SVA) is looking for your help to complete the Shoreline Veterans Plaza at Shoreline City Hall. They are currently $25,000 short of completing their project, specifically the seven 4 feet tall obelisks that honor all branches of the military.

SVA Chairman Dwight Stevens reports that all five benches have been sold thanks to Harley O’Neil, the Shoreline Rotary Club, Sheetmetal Workers Local #66, the Shoreline Elks #1800 and 40 Et 8 Veterans. However only 150 standard bricks ($100 each) and 10 double size bricks in the Ring of honor ($1,000 each) have been purchased. Over 2,500 fliers were distributed at local events and businesses, however, a limited number have been returned. There is space for over 1,000 bricks total.

The SVA would like to thank the following organizations and businesses for their support of this project with a donation of $1,000 or more: the City of Shoreline, King County, American Legion Post 227, Recology CleanScapes, Chuck Olson Chevrolet, Carter Subaru Shoreline and individuals Harley O’Neil, Dick Deal, Philip Oakes and Frank and Phyllis Moll.

The project is currently under construction at Shoreline City Hall located on Midvale Ave and 175th Street. Bricks will be engraved on site once a minimum number has been purchased.

Donations for construction are welcome! To purchase a brick or for more information, please go to or contact or call Dwight Stevens at (206) 246-2894.
