The Veterans & First Responder Memorial Organization is asking for your financial support in the Phase I construction of the new Memorial to be located at Robin Hood Park at Fairfield Glade. The completion of this three-phased project is dependent on community donations and grant funding. Your donation will help achieve the goal of $400K for Phase I which is the center piece and most expensive part of the Memorial.
The Veterans & First Responder Memorial at Fairfield Glade is a county-wide initiative dedicated to honor our veterans and first responders. These heroes are very near and dear to the heart of every citizen for without them we would not be this great country. The dream to build a memorial to show our thanks and respect to veterans and first responders began in December 2018 and over the next year and half a 501c3 organization was formed and chartered with the purpose to build and sustain a memorial to recognize the service of veterans and first responders to our Community, States and Nation. The Memorial will be located in Robin Hood Park with land provided by the Fairfield Glade Community Club.
The construction of the Memorial is a 4-5-year project with three phases, each with distinct and separate features.
Phase I: Three plazas holding the flags of our Nation and State, Military Services and First Responders, including law enforcement, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel. This will include special engravings and commemorative features. Patios and walkways will be installed allowing for engraved bricks purchased by individuals in remembrance of their loved ones or friends as well as in memory of their own service.
Phase II: Commemorative Garden with walkways, landscaping and additional special features calling attention to major events and actions throughout U.S. history. This will be a place where visitors can reflect upon the incredible contributions and sacrifices made by those who served.
Phase III: A pavilion that will be a part of Robin Hood Park itself. It will be a place where individuals and community groups can enjoy the grounds, have picnics and celebrations, and conduct special events.
Phase I construction is scheduled to begin during the spring of 2022. However, donor support from the community is critical if we are to be make this dream come true. We need support from businesses, corporations, professionals, civic organizations, and individuals, as well as grant and foundation funding.
