Building A Monument 2017

Local Artist, Mark Kenny, has begun the sculpting of the statue portion of the Veterans Monument.  The first step was to take the schematics to the foundry for 3-D pieces of the statue to be made in styrofoam.  Quartermaster Bert Little and Mark Kenny transported the styrofoam back to Seaside for the addition of clay and details.  After a 1/4" of clay was added, the 7'2"statue was transported back to the foundry, Firebird Bronze, for the next process.  The statue will be at the foundry for 12-14 weeks.  Pictures of the process will be posted in the gallery as we go along.  Currently pictures of the styrofoam and the clay are posted in the Gallery.  This projet is supported in part by a grant from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, Fort Stevens 10580 Post & Auxiliary and the generous donations from the citizens and businesses of Warrenton-Hammond.

Memorial Bricks

We are now taking orders for Memorial Bricks.   If you have a Veteran you want to honor with a memorial brick this is your opportunity.   The bricks will be placed in the area of the monument.  They are made from concrete and use a combination of laser engraving along with sandblasting.  Up to 3 lines can be included on the brick and there is room for clip art if desired.

A 4" x 8" brick with no clip art is $50.00.  You can use up to 20 spaces per line, including blank spaces.   If you wish to include clip art (which we show on our sample), there is a maximum of 15 spaces per line.  A brick with clip art is $60.00

On April 7, 2016 the Post and Auxiliary received the news for the State of Oregon Parks & Recreation Department that we had been awarded our grant and it was fully funded in the amount requested, $72,020. 

On April 25, 2017 we attended the City of Warrenton Commission Meeting and asked that the City of Warrenton sign the Grant Agreement with the State.  The City of Warrenton Commissioners voted to sign the agreement with the State.

We are ready to start the process of building our Monument.  Continue to check the website for updates and pictures of our progress.

Upcoming Memorial Day Ceremonies

On May 29, 2017 the Post and Auxiliary will perform two Memorial Day Ceremonies.  The first will be held at the Fort Stevens Army Post Cemetary and will start at 11:00 a.m.   The second ceremony will be held at the Flag Pole Park in downtown Warrenton, next to the Warrenton Post Office.  This ceremony will be held at 12:30 p.m.  We hope to see everyone there.
We have reached our original goal of $26,530.  We will continue  to fundraise for the Veterans Monument to cover any unforseen expenses and continuing maintenance.    We are planning a community wide celebration during the unveiling.
