An Opportunity to Honor Veterans
One of my favorite privileges on the corner of Lincoln and Main in Belvidere, Illinois comes on Memorial Day weekend when I ask our veterans to stand during the children's portion of our worship service, hear the applause as thanks to God for them, and remind our children of all ages, "Please remember these women and men who have risked it all for our freedom and the American way of life! Praise God for them! Show your appreciation!"
And the congregation explodes in another round of applause!
Annnnnnnd it's a privilege to introduce you to an opportunity "to honor all those who serve and have served in our military to protect America" by participating in the "Woodstock Harley-Davidson Veterans Memorial" to be dedicated on Veterans Day (November 11, 2015).
WHD is offering us "an opportunity to become a permanent part of their Veterans Memorial by donating a personalized brick."
Specifically, "Help honor our veterans with a memorial that will include a granite stone monument and 80' flag pole with all donated bricks placed around it."
Participants can "personalize your brick with your message and/or graphic for a memory that will last forever."
There are two options: 4"X8" bricks with 3 lines of 18 character personalization for $40 and 8"X8" bricks with 6 lines of the same for $80.
We can order on line at www.thatsmybrick.com/woodstockhdvmfund or write to Woodstock Harley-Davidson at 2050 S. Eastwood Drive (Route 47) in Woodstock, Illinois 60098.
Annnnnnnd if neither of those options work for you, call us at 815-544-6402 and we'll get you on board.
The deadline for orders is September 1, 2015.
Thank you for considering this opportunity to support and honor our troops and veterans!
Blessings and Love!
