What is an Engraved Paver?
One service the Friends of Hemlock Bluffs provides is the installation of engraved pavers in the courtyard of the Stevens Nature Center at Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve. The sale of engraved pavers is the one on-going fundraising project of the Friends of Hemlock Bluffs.
Purchase a paver for $150 and engrave a personal message, honor a friend or a pet - it's a gift that keeps giving day after day!
Pavers have been purchased for a variety of reasons over the years; in memorial for a loved one, as a love token year after year, and even as a marriage proposal! What unique way can you think of to "carve your name in stone"?
Our engraver/vendor must have at least 30 orders to begin engraving; so depending on how many orders have been received, the installation time of your paver may be the week following the placement of your order or several months later.
When pavers are installed, the Friends organize a dedication ceremony and invite both those who ordered the pavers and those to whom they are dedicated. We currently try to have one dedication ceremony each year. We can only conduct this event if we meet our minimum order number required by our paver engraver. Typically orders placed in the beginning of the calendar year are recognized in the Fall of the same year.
Many supporters purchase pavers year after year after year. Won't you join us?
