My Veteran / My Hero Tribute Tree© program
The Central Point Parks and Recreation Department, in partnership with the Central Point Parks and Recreation Foundation, is proud to announce a new program that will celebrate the service of U.S. military veterans.
The My Veteran / My Hero Tribute Tree© program allows loved ones to honor and remember eligible veterans who have actively served in the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines, and Army Air Corps and who were discharged or released there from under conditions other than dishonorable.
Both living and deceased veterans are eligible, and there is no Central Point residence requirement for either the donor or the honoree. In addition, the donation may be in honor of a veteran or in memory of a veteran.
For a (tax-deductible) donation of $450, a 1.5”- 2” caliper tree will be planted by the City at Don Jones Memorial Park. Included with each tree will be a post-mounted, metal plaque located beside the tree which will provide the name of the veteran honored. Additionally, a QR code on each plaque will link to a City of Central Point webpage that will provide biographical information on the veteran’s service along with a photo.
