So far, 69 congregations of every denomination across the state have responded to the invitation to donate a brick for the Memorial Walkway of the Station Fire Memorial in West Warwick. Congregations that wish to be listed as donors in the program at the Dedication and Blessing taking place on Oct. 23 at 1 PM must order bricks by Sept. 30.
Bricks ordered now will be installed after the dedication, but congregations who make a commitment by Sept. 30 will be included in the list of faith communities inserted into the program.
To make a commitment to donate a brick email Dan Barry (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell him that your faith community wants to make a contribution to the Memorial Park. Churches do not need to send the money immediately, or even commit to an amount; they just must commit to making a contribution by Oct. 15, 2016.
If you have any questions please feel free to call Dan Barry at 401-996-1772 or the Rev. Dr. Don Anderson at 401-578-0388.
