Deterrent Park Paver Donation Order Nearing Deadline for Sep/Oct Installation
Now's the time to act, especially if you would like an engraved brick close to the WWII Submarine Force Medal of Honor recipients.
The semiannual installation of Paver Donations for Deterrent Park's (NKB BANGOR) in the full scale replica of the USS WOODROW WILSON (SSBN 624) submarine topside missile deck will be in late September or early October, 2012. The deadline for making these donation orders is 30 August, 2012. An application order form may be filled out online, printed out and mailed in (w/check).
Please give your order broad consideration as some have made orders and requested additional pavers at a later date and want them placed next to their older donations. This is not the policy. So, if your are considering a group order, which are common for families, boats, divisions etc, please include all that you would like in the order you make.
We currently have nine pavers in the queue for fall installation.. We would like to see it 20 or 30. Please help us out. Below is image of last install. Note pavers will weather and appear uniform in 2 to 3 years. They are a lasting memento.

It was diagnosed as Poison Sumac, but it turns out it was some type of auto immune disease. He is near perfect as you can see in picture to right.
