The Berkeley Heights Memorial Park Renewal Committee is committed to overseeing the restoration of the Veterans' Memorial at Memorial Park. The Veterans' Memorial honors those who have served in any of the five branches of the US military (Army, Navy, Marines, US Coast Guard, and Air Force) during any US conflict or war.
Since its unveiling in 1987, the Veterans' Memorial has experienced extensive wear and deterioration, including buckling brick walkways,shrubs dying and not replaced, damage to the flagpole, light fixtures rusting and benches covered with mildew. In all, the Berkeley Heights Veterans' Memorial needs approximately $140,000 worth of repairs and re-construction. It is our goal to restore the Memorial to pristine condition by Memorial Day, May 30, 2016 through fundraising and County and hopefully Township matching funds. A rendering of the concept memorial is enclosed.
As part of the fundraising efforts for the restoration, the Committee is asking local businesses and residents to help make this dream a reality. All donations will go towards the materials and labor required for the repair work, landscaping, electrical work, and construction costs associated with the renewal project.
Please note that donations will be recognized in some method, but they will not be part of the actual memorial.
Please take this opportunity to be part of the effort to honor our veterans. Your sponsorship is greatly appreciated, and your donation will help honor the veterans who gave their lives to protect the freedoms that we value today.
