VETERANS MEMORIAL :
"REMEMBERING ALL WHO SERVED"
Wenatchee Valley VFW Post 3617 is committed to build a Veteran's Memorial,
with to goal to preclude any bureaucratic intervention or other outside political issues,
and located where the memorial can be readily maintained.
This Memorial that we envision will allow us to extend use for ALL VETERANS,
not just those in Douglas County,
as had been required for the previous potential site by the Eastmont Park Board.
Veterans, family and friends may honor Veterans from Chelan, Douglas, Grant,
Okanagan, and Kittitas Counties.
Businesses in these areas can also support this undertaking,
whether with in-kind contributions,
bronze monuments donated for the Memorial,
or by purchasing Memorial Pavers noting their support and honoring Veterans.
It has been determined that there is a water table issue at the bottom of our property,
and as such, a considerable amount of financial remediation would be required
to place the memorial at the bottom of our post property.
We are therefore seeking alternative sites for our memorial,
and have been speaking with the Douglas County Commissioners.
It is possible that there may be an opportunity to utilize a portion
of the parking area at the new Law & Justice Center on
19th at Cascade Avenue.
We will endeavor to provide information as it becomes available,
in order to keep everyone interested in this project abreast of ongoing plans.
Any Veteran, family member, friend, supporter or business may purchase
a Memorial Paving Stone to honor veterans,
by completing the Veterans Memorial Order Forms,
available on this website.
Your Paving Stone will be ready for immediate installation once a site is confirmed.
Donations may be made specifying that the donation
is solely for the purpose of the Veterans Memorial.
This can be done by clicking the
"DONATE" Button Below,
and indicating that your contribution
is for that purpose.
REMEMBER, ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
