In the spring of 2020, Southside Virginia, through a year-long campaign, obtained the sponsorship of the Walkway of Honor at the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond. This beautiful facility overlooks the James River and stands as a beacon to honor those who so bravely served and demonstrated a willingness to fight and defend our way of life. Southside Virginia’s sponsorship of the Walkway of Honor now offers the opportunity to recognize heroic patriots from Halifax County through the purchase of a brick in this beautiful sidewalk. The first three sections of this brick footpath through the memorial grounds are reserved for Southside Virginia citizens, thus placing their names first among their Virginia brothers and sisters as a result of our sponsorship.
Bricks for Veterans may be purchased for $150 through December 31, 2020.
From January 1, 2021 and onward the price will be $250.
Bricks are 4” x 8” ($150 each) Message must fit within space for brick. 4”x 8” brick: 3 lines, up to 16 characters each.
What will the bricks look like:
