Father’s Day looms on the horizon; we are reminded of the many fathers who have served our nation with courage and dedication. In honor of these brave men and our continued respect for all veterans, we are delighted to announce an extension of the Veteran Plaza Pavement Brick Promotion until Father’s Day.

The Mishawaka Parks & Recreation Department, in partnership with Mishawaka Troop Town (MTT), has been overwhelmed by the heartwarming response to this unique initiative launched on Memorial Day. The community’s participation in creating a lasting tribute to our service members at Battell Park’s Veteran Plaza has been incredible, showing how deeply our veterans are revered.

Father’s Day is an occasion to honor and celebrate our fathers – the heroes in our lives. With this extension, we can recognize those fathers who have also been heroes in a broader sense, serving our country in the armed forces. What better way to honor these fathers than by dedicating a personalized brick in their name on the pathways of the Veteran Plaza?

As with the initial promotion, each brick can be customized with the veteran’s name, service dates, or a heartfelt message. By extending the campaign, we hope to fill the plaza with bricks representing a broader swathe of our community’s service members. It’s a beautiful way to connect generations and to show our fathers who have served just how much their sacrifices mean to us.

Father’s Day is traditionally a time to express our love and gratitude towards our fathers, often with gifts and celebrations. This year, we invite you to make it even more meaningful by honoring your father in a lasting, memorable way – with a brick that pays homage to his service and sacrifice.

We encourage everyone to continue supporting this campaign. Each purchase contributes to the beauty and tranquility of Battell Park and supports the creation of a physical testament to our shared history and respect for those who have served in the armed forces.

Let’s ensure your gratitude is etched in stone this Father’s Day, creating a legacy of respect and appreciation that will endure for generations. Your participation makes all the difference. To make an order, print and refer to the flyer attached:

This Father’s Day, gift your dad something extraordinary – a personalized brick in the Veteran Plaza, a tribute to his service, and a celebration of his role in your life.

Join us in this ongoing tribute to our heroes. Purchase your brick today, and transform this Father’s Day into a celebration of lasting honor and respect.

A special thanks to everyone who has made it possible so far.
