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. 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.
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. The next orders will be July 15, 2016, provided we have at least 25 orders, then November 1, 2016. Orders will be accepted all year and engraved in lots several times a year.
The Memorial Walkway connects 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 1/4 ” X 6 7/8” for $80 includes two lines, each line has a maximum of 11 spaces; and 13 3/4” X 8 1/4” 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.
