CT Trees of Honor Memorial Dedication, Sponsors Needed

Dear Friend of the Connecticut Trees of Honor Memorial, 

The hero trees, monuments, pond and surrounding areas at the memorial are coming together nicely as we move towards our very special Public Dedication Ceremony on September 17, 2016.  While we were not able to complete all aspects of our original design plan, we are hopeful that one day those features will be added.

At this time, we are reaching out to our supporters to give you the opportunity to sponsor one of our hero trees.  To date, we have more than half of the trees unsponsored.  We are asking for a donation of

$1,500 to sponsor one of the remaining hero trees.  Your generous donation will be used to annually maintain the tree with fertilizer, watering, etc. In addition, we will use these funds to replace trees whenever the need arises.  In return for your tree sponsorship, you will be given an engraved brick near your tree to alert those who visit that you are supporting the CT Trees of Honor Memorial and are willing to ensure that the trees and surrounding areas are properly taken care of for years to come. 

If you wish to sponsor a tree, you can go to our website and make a one-time donation of $1,500 at or you can mail checks payable to CTHM, Inc. at P.O. Box 86; Cromwell, CT 06416.

If you have a preference on which hero tree you are sponsoring, please indicate this with your payment. Thank you!

Warm regards,
     Sue Martucci, President & Blue Star Mother
     Diane DeLuzio, Secretary & Gold/Blue Star Mother
     Roger Beliveau, Director & U.S. Navy Veteran
     Mark DeLuzio, Director & Gold/Blue Star Father
