Memorial bricks available now

Published: July 7, 2017 4:00 AM

Order forms for the Portage County Veterans Memorial Bricks are now available.

The memorial is located outside the Portage County Courthouse on Main Street in Ravenna. An annual ceremony held on Veteran's Day -- this year on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. -- recognizes those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

The memorial, which honors the more than 1,400 veterans from Portage County, is laid out in the shape of a bald eagle, the national bird, with five smaller memorials along the "wings" of the eagle. Memorial bricks are placed along the walkway of the memorial each year before the ceremony.

In order for bricks to be installed before this year's ceremony, orders must be received by Aug. 15. An 8-by-8 inch brick is $100 and a 12-by-12 inch brick is $250.

Order forms, with ordering instructions, are available on line at www.co.portage.oh.us/vetsmemorial.
