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 www.cttreesofhonor.com/donateor 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 Cheryl LaFlamme-Miller, Treasurer
