A deadline of 12 noon on Friday, Oct. 23 has been set for Memorial Brick applications to be turned in. This will allow the engraver enough time to get the bricks engraved and the bricklayer to lay the bricks at the Veterans Memorial in time for Veterans Day on November 11. The next scheduled laying of bricks will be in May 2021, in time for Memorial Day.
Anyone wanting to pick up an application can do so at the Chatham VFW Post 4763, the Chatham Utility Office, Chatham American Legion Post 759, Chatham Chamber of Commerce or Butler Funeral Home in Chatham and take the completed application and money to the Chatham Utility office. The cost for each Memorial Brick is $50, and only one name per brick. For more information, contact Les Morgan at 414-4183.
