The Rogers Veterans Memorial was brought to the City of Rogers attention by several groups in the community who felt we should have something that helps recognize those who fought for our country. This new memorial will have several donation options for the public. Pavers, benches, sponsoring-a-vet, pledges, trees, and replacement flags will all be options for the public as well as businesses to give. The timeline of the project is projected to start October 10th, 2013 and be finished July 4th 2014.
Download the donation brochure to donate or to purchase a paver.
Pavers are 4"x8" granite and can be purchased by downloading our donation brochure. Instructions on how to order and different layout options are included in the brochure.
Sponsor-A-Vet ProgramThis program is for individuals, families, or businesses who do not want to be personally recognized and do not know of anyone to sponsor. The City of Rogers, Lions, or Rotary, will find a past, present, or future Veteran in the community to be recognized. Please enclose $250 per Veteran (to cover the cost of the brick paver,) along with a blank order form that signals us that we should find someone for you.
