You could purchase a brick paver at the cost of ($75-4”x8” brick or $100-8”x8” brick) that will be installed at and around the base of the memorial. Will you help us with this project? If you are a Pastor, would you be willing to take up a one time special offering for this project? Several churches are contributing $1,000.00 and others are contributing less, but whatever your gift it would be greatly appreciated. May I encourage each of you to personally give to this project. Maybe you could have a special day to honor the great men of the past. Any gift would be appreciated, whether given by an individual, a local church ministry or by a Christian business.
If you believe that constructing a costly monument to a departed man is a better use of your funds than caring for those still living, you might be a fundamentalist.
