November 11th Veterans Day marked the dedication for Benbow Veterans Memorial on Mainstreet Buckeye, Arizona.
When I joined the Mainstreet Coalition last winter, Ron Noble, President of the Buckeye Mainstreet Coalition handed me a concept sketch of what he envisioned for the Benbow Veterans Memorial. When I first looked at the drawing I thought, "How lucky am I to give some input on this local project!"

The presentation watercolor and many other drawings were presented to the Buckeye community to gain approval and momentum. To learn more about Benbow Veterans Memorial check out this article featuring Ron Noble, the President of the Buckeye Mainstreet Coalition.

It is quite wonderful to see the reflections as one stands in front of the black granite memorial wall. What you see here is the first phase of construction. As more funds are raised, further phases will be constructed. Do you have a loved one who served in the military? Bricks pavers are being sold now for $50.00 each to raise money needed to finish the project. Serbin Studio has order forms if you are interested in purchasing a brick. Please contact Lara Serbin if you are interested.
