VFW Post 6187 has donated land next to their building in Fort Fairfield for the future placement of a memorial which will include ten flag poles and seven granite stones – one for every war, for a total of six, and an additional stone representing a vow to never forget our veterans.

In front of the flag poles and stones is space dedicated to the laying of 2,100 brick pavers with veterans’ names. The memorial will also include four granite benches allowing visitors to relax and view the flags, stones, and bricks.
Anyone who is interested in purchasing a brick paver to have a veteran’s name engraved should contact VFW Post 6187 at 130 Presque Isle Street, Fort Fairfield or call (207) 473-7420.
