Name a Bench in the Cousins Memorial Plaza
Your participation in our bench recognition program will support our effort to restore the Cousins Memorial and honor those who served our nation. Naming a bench also demonstrates your commitment to the exceptional landscape of the Eastern Promenade.
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.
