The memorial walkway was started in 2002 with several monuments and has grown to 65 monuments honoring all 5 branches of service, veteran organizations, groups and war periods. The funds raised from the sale of the bricks continue to fund cemetery improvements which are outside the scope of normal operations. As a result of weather and foot traffic some of the bricks are getting ‘tired’ and showing their wear. We have started a multi-year project to replace the bricks with a sturdier type that should handle the wear better.
