Veterans Park Spring Brick Drive begins

Darin Burk

With the coming of spring the Veterans Park Committee is conducting the first of the semi-annual brick drives for 2018. Our park now contains over 550 bricks commemorating the service of Robson Ranch residents and family members. 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 3 lines of text with up to 16 characters/spaces per line. The 8”x8” brick will allow for 6 lines of text with up to 16 characters/spaces per line as well as up to 2 service insignias. The 12”x12” brick accommodates up to 10 lines of text with up to 20 characters/spaces per line as well as up to 4 logos or service insignias. Please keep in mind that including logos reduces the text space. The costs of the bricks are $60.00 for the 4”x8”, $110.00 for the 8”x8” and $180.00 for the 12”x12”. The 12”x12” is frequently utilized to honor the service of multiple family members.

Order forms are available in the drawer below the SOT Tribute Book located near the Activities Director’s desk in the Clubhouse. Order forms are alos available online at the HOA website under the Support Our Troops entry in Activities/Announcements:Clubs:SOT. Please consider placing your order by April 25th to allow for installation prior to Memorial Day.
