To the Editor:

The American Legion Auxiliary would like to send out public apologies to all those people who have purchased personalized bricks that were promised to be installed at the Veterans’ Memorial Park in time for Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

Unfortunately, the manufacturer, which is located in Wisconsin, has been unable to procure the material that is needed for the engraving of the brick. Apparently, it is the same material used for monuments.

Due to the demand the last year or so, plus the problem at the ports, it has become a dilemma. The bricks are available but the engraving cannot be done.

As soon as the personalization has been completed and the bricks are shipped to Bluffton, they will be installed immediately.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Kay Ranta
