The City of Niagara Falls is currently working on two collaborative projects to honour and respect military veterans who have served and those who continue to serve for our freedoms. Recognizing our armed forces and veterans remains a priority for the City of Niagara Falls. The restoration project currently underway at Fairview Cemetery is revitalizing the grounds and adding a more suitable memorial for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This large scale project has garnered attention and support from people and groups around our community. As part of the proposed plans for the Unknown Soldier monument, we are looking to add six striking metallic benches around the memorial to accommodate visitors paying their respects. The Unknown Solider Memorial, including the installation of the benches is scheduled for completion in September 2017. On behalf of our serving military personnel and veterans, the organizing committee is seeking a $3,000 donation to make each of the proposed benches a reality. See attachments below.
Your contribution will support: purchase of bench, delivery, installation, site preparation.
The benches come with a life time warranty ensuring repairs or replacement that may be necessary in years to come. Your donation will provide timeless recognition of your family or business on a plaque alongside your bench at the Unknown Soldier Monument at Fairview Cemetery. On behalf of The City of Niagara Falls, active military personnel and veterans, as well as our committee, we thank you for your consideration of this significant project. The attached booklet outlines details of the entire Fairview Cemetery Restoration Project. For further information regarding a donation or project details please contact or visit Mark Richardson at Cemetery Services, located at 4501 Stanley Ave. (905) 354-4721.
