Memorialize a veteran in stone at Veterans' Plaza

Looking for a gift idea for a veteran in your life?

The Memorial Fund for Veterans of Washington County is offering personally engraved stones that will be placed in the Veterans Gateway at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Hillsboro.

The Gateway is part of a larger Plaza project that is also extending Northeast Grant Street to Brookwood Parkway by constructing a new road named Veterans Drive.

All personalized stones will be placed in the Gateway area, a greenspace between the Washington County Fair Complex and the MAX station parking lot.

Paving stones for individuals cost $75. A service organization or business paving stone — such as military organizations and reunion groups — is $100.

For more information or to purchase a stone, visit washcovets-memorialfund.org.
