Veterans Monument – The City of Chino Hills has approved construction of a Veterans Monument.  The monument will be paid for entirely from private funds and is to be donated to the city.  Fundraising has now begun and you are invited to purchase a tribute brick to help with the project. The bricks can be personalized with a message or tribute. The 4×8 bricks are $175.00 and the 8×8 bricks are $375.00. The bricks will be placed around the base of the monument. The target date for completion of the project is Veterans Day of next year, November 11, 2018.  Click here for the brick order form: Veterans Brick Order Form Dec 2016.  Here are the available graphics for the bricks.  For Corporate Sponsors, please click here. Bricks may also be purchased at the Farmers’ Market at the Chino Hills Shoppes on Wednesdays from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.
