Honor Your Special Veteran with an Engraved Brick this Memorial Day

The next brick installation on the Franklin Memorial Walkway on the town common is scheduled for May. Bricks may be purchased to pay tribute to anyone who served or is currently serving in the U.S. military.  

“We’ve had a great response to the walkway project,” noted Dale Kurtz, Franklin’s Veterans’ Services Officer. “Just under 1,600 engraved bricks have been installed since the walkway was dedicated in November 2018. We’ll continue to sell bricks until all bricks in the walkway have been engraved.  We’re very excited about our new brick locator feature which allows brick purchasers and recipients to locate their brick on the walkway. Gathering the information to create the locator database was the work of several very committed volunteers. The entire project has been a collaborative effort by the Franklin Veterans’ Council and several other members of the community. Their dedication to the walkway project are reflected in this beautiful addition to our town’s war memorial,” Kurtz added.

The deadline for ordering engraved bricks for the May installation is April 1, 2021. For brick order forms and more information, contact the Veterans’ Services Office at: (508) 613-1315.
