Veterans Park Brick Drive underway

Darin Burk

The Veterans Park Committee is kicking off the fall Brick Drive. Our park now contains over 600 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 future honorees.

The park is in a beautiful location on the knoll between the clubhouse and the golf shop. The land was generously donated by Mr. Ed Robson, and has become one of the prized highlights of the Robson Ranch community. A Veterans Day ceremony will be held in the park 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. Orders must be received by October 7, 2019, to allow time for processing and installation prior to Veterans Day!

Engraved bricks can be purchased in three sizes. The 4”x 8” brick will accommodate three lines of text with up to 16 characters/spaces per line. The 8”x 8” brick will allow for six lines of text with up to 16 characters/spaces per line. The 12”x 12” brick accommodates up to ten lines of text with up to 20 characters/spaces per line. Service logos and insignias can be included on the 8”x 8” and 12”x 12” bricks if all of the text space is not used. The cost of the bricks is $60 for the 4”x 8”, $110 for the 8”x 8”, and $180 for the 12”x 12”. The 12”x 12” bricks are frequently utilized to honor the service of multiple family members.

Order forms will be available at the next SOT meeting, Monday, September 9, at 1:00 p.m. in the clubhouse. The group will receive an update on current military activities from a naval officer. Brick order forms also are available in the drawer below the SOT Tribute Book located near the Activities Director’s desk in the clubhouse. Order forms are also available online at the HOA website under the Support Our Troops entry in Activities/Announcements: Clubs: SOT.
