Giving Tuesday and the Walk of Heroes

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two days for getting deals, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

The staff and Directors of The Walk of Heroes are thankful for the supporters who have been a part of the Park over the past 14 years. The generosity of members and financial supporters has allowed us to continue to work towards the completion of The Walk of Heroes.

Today, in celebration of #GivingTuesday, we wanted to present a pressing need at The Walk of Heroes.


If you have had the opportunity to visit the Memorial Park recently, you might be aware that the Bead Sight Fountain at the Entrance Archway has been inoperable since June 2015.  We have obtained a quote of $28,850 to repair/refurbish the Fountain and the Control Box.  It has been operating since it was dedicated in Nov. 2004, year-round, and just gave out!  It is our #1 Priority project for 2016.

Where we are as of December 4, 2015
