Name a Bench      Recognize a Loved One          Honor a Friend 

Help Friends of the Eastern Promenade restore the past. Your participation in this bench recognition program demonstrates your commitment to this exceptional landscape and to those who have served. 

Six World's Fair benches are still available for recognition allowing reflection and inspiration for all who visit this significant memorial. Sit, relax and enjoy spectacular views to the northeast from the semi-circular plaza to be created at this popular park entrance. The renovation provides a more dignified setting befitting recognition of Maine's first Jewish soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice during World War I. 

These timeless, commemorative benches intended for placement at the Jacob Cousins Memorial are $5,000 and directly support completion of this historic undertaking.  100% of your contribution is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
