May 5– Time is quickly running out for the purchase of bricks honoring military veterans in time for the bricks to be installed before the opening ceremonies of the new Savannah Memorial Park on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
A May 15 deadline has been set for the first installment of bricks with laser-etched names of veterans.
The bricks will be used to pave the walkway through the park now under construction on Hanna Boulevard.
According to the Hardin County Veterans Services office, more than 100 bricks have been purchased in the past couple months.
Bricks may continue to be purchased after the deadline of May 15, but will be installed at the park after Veterans Day.
