Elgin Alumni Association announced its first timeless beautification project of a lighted, landscaped walkway to include seating areas at the North public entrances of the new K-12 campus. The project is seeking major donors to fund the estimated $12,000 project. Major donors of the project will receive special permanent recognition on the sight if desired. A minimum donation of $500 would qualify for “Major Donor” recognition. This project will serve as a living legacy to everyone in the Elgin District. All donations are gratefully accepted, and qualify as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt donation to EAA. A local company and Elgin Alumni, Johnson Property Services, will be doing the construction. We hope to accomplish this within the next few months so that work can begin while the weather holds.
Engraved Pavers are also available for purchase to ensure fully funding the project and to grow our EAA Scholarship Fund. Consider honoring former Elgin grads, Elgin supporters, loved ones, teachers, administrators, coaches, parents or community supporters and organizations. BE AMONG THE FIRST TO ORDER BY DECEMBER 31! The next orders will be April 1, 2016, provided we have at least 25 orders, then May 1, 2016. Orders will be accepted all year and engraved in lots several times a year.
The Memorial Walkway will connect the North entrance doors to the concrete pad encircling the flag pole with bench seating. Two different sizes of gray pavers are available to engrave: 8”X 6” for $80 includes two lines, each line has a maximum of 11 spaces; and 13” X 8” for $135 includes 3 lines, each line has a maximum 20 spaces. An additional line can be purchased for either size for another $15. Please consider donating and/or having an engraved paver as a lasting imprint of your support of Elgin District.
