Support Matching Grant Challenge to upgrade
PA Area of Medal of Honor Grove
The Friends of the Medal of Honor Grove have begun an initiative to significantly upgrade the landscaping of the Pennsylvania Area in the Grove. There is a matching grant challenge to raise the funds necessary.
The Pennsylvania Area pays tribute to almost 400 Medal of Honor Recipients from the Commonwealth — second only to New York in the number of Recipients — and new landscaping would make it easier for visitors to view the ground plaques of Recipients from the Keystone State.
The landscaping would include a new brick plaza, native shrubs and trees, benches, several tons of stone for under the plaques, and pathways to connect the plaza with the two long rows of Recipient ground plaques behind the obelisk. To support this effort, visit www.friendsmohgrove.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Any remaining funds would be held by the Friends for maintenance of the Grove.
