Even though we are in the midst of the warm Texas summer, the Veterans Park Committee is kicking off the Fall Brick Drive. Our park now contains over 500 bricks commemorating the service of Robson Ranch residents and family members. Those of you that have visited the park know that we have many blank bricks reserving space for the future honorees.
Mr. Ed Robson provided us with the beautiful location occupied by the park. The park has become one of the prized highlights of the Robson Ranch community. Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies are conducted in the park each year to provide us with an opportunity to show our respect for those who have proudly served and in some cases made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure the freedom that we all enjoy.
Now is the time to consider including your name or the name of a family member to commemorate the service to our nation. Many residents have purchased the bricks as gifts to their family members.
Engraved bricks can be purchased in three sizes: 4”x8”, 8”x8” and 12”x12”. The 4”x8” brick will accommodate three lines of text with up to 16 characters/spaces per line. The 8”x8” brick will allow for six lines of text with up to 16 characters/spaces per line. The 12”x12” brick accommodates up to 10 lines of text with up to 20 characters/spaces per line. Service logos and insignias can be included on the 8”x8” and 12”x12” brick if all of the text space is not used. The cost of the bricks are $60 for the 4”x8”, $110 for the 8”x8” and $180 for the 12”x12”. The 12”x12” bricks are frequently utilized to honor the service of multiple family members.
