Memorial Tribute Program
About the program
We know how difficult it is to lose a loved one, and how important it is to keep his or her memory alive. That’s why POST Partners developed the Memorial Tribute Program that offers donors an opportunity to purchase a Memorial Bench or Memorial Tree in honor of a loved one.
The Memorial Bench Program offers donors the opportunity to purchase a bench in honor of a loved one. The benches are placed in areas of need throughout the Town’s parks, and along paved trails.
The benches are 6 feet wide and have a powder-coat finish in the same color as other permanent fixtures in the area. Memorial plaques inset in the bench include the honoree’s name(s).
The cost for a Memorial Bench is $1,500, which includes shipping and handling, assembly, pouring of the concrete pad, and engraving of the memorial plaque.

The Memorial Tree Program offers donors the opportunity to purchase a tree in honor of a loved one. Donors can choose from one of six tree varieties to plant in memory of their loved one. Varieties include the Southwestern White Pine, Flowering Crabapple, Linden, Blue Spruce, Hackberry / Sugarberry or Norway Maple. Trees are planted at Town parks or trails.
A gold leaf is placed on the Tree Legacy Program memorial plaque at Town Hall. Transplanting seasons are in the spring and late fall, when trees are dormant. Current estimated cost for a memorial tree is $500.
