The Battle Ground Bricks & Banners program honors local men and woman who have served in the United States military. Bricks & banners must be ordered no later than March 1st to be installed by Memorial Day of this year.
Dedicated in 2015, the Battle Ground Veteran Memorial, located in Kiwanis Park, is lined with commemorative bricks representing locals who serve or have served our nation, protecting the many freedoms enjoyed by all Americans. It is with pride our community watches this living tribute grow with new bricks added year after year.
The cost of an engraved and installed brick is $250. Proceeds support the ongoing maintenance of the Battle Ground Veterans Memorial. This beautiful memorial was fully funded and constructed through generous donations.
Likewise, in 2021 the Battle Ground City Council launched the Main Street Military Banner program, which is designed to honor veterans, active-duty personnel, and those who have chosen to enter the military. Banners featuring individual honorees are displayed along Main Street each year during the month of May – Military Appreciation Month – through the third week of June.
The cost to purchase a customized banner is $250 and includes the production, installation, and display of a banner along Main Street during the initial year of purchase. Purchasers retain ownership of their banners, which are returned to them upon conclusion of the display period. Banners may be reinstalled at the request of the owner during subsequent years’ display periods.
Detailed information about the Battle Ground Bricks & Banner program, including order forms and sample images, are available on the City’s website at www.cityofbg.org/Bricks-Banners.
