The New Washington Beautification Committee is still sponsoring their project to help fund the committee’s dedication to ongoing projects including the Christmas Tree Light Up Ceremony, Community Flag Program and other projects to help beautify the town.

The New Washington Beautification Committee has constructed a memorial brick area on the square in New Washington across from the New Washington State Bank adjacent to the 1894 Lodge. The memorial brick area is around the flagpole and Christmas tree platform.

Thanks to a generous donation from the New Washington State Bank, the program got off to a great start! Through the project, the New Washington Beautification Committee is offering a regular size brick for $50 or you can purchase a large brick for $100. Each brick may have up to three lines of inscription, 15 characters per line. You may purchase bricks in honor of your parents or grandparents, your high school class, your wedding anniversary, in memory of a loved one or friend or any other lasting tribute. For example:

John Smith

Mary Kent Smith

NWHS Class 1958

or

In Memory of

Fay Stout &

Jack Stout
