MEMORIAL WALL PROJECT:
L
ooking for donations of cars, trucks, or boats and or anything else!! Any Condition!
T
he Midcoast Area Veterans Memorial has well over 300 etched granite tiles on our Memorial. After many years, the grout between the tiles is breaking down and falling out and staining the tiles mounted below them. The grout needs to be removed and replaced with a silicone based grout that will withstand the environment. We need to raise money to make this happen. Your donation will help with this project and it is even tax-deductible. Please contact Mike McNeil at 207-542-4802.
