Brick Recognition Program

A Lasting Memory

Located next to the Hartman Pond is the beautiful Legacy Garden. Throughout the garden are bricks memorializing the names of individuals who made a bequest to High Hopes in the past as well as honoring individuals who have joined our Legacy Society.

Your gift can also be made in honor or memory of a family member, friend or cherished pet and the stone will be inscribed with that information, thereby providing a lasting memorial and long term financial support for High Hopes.

Legacy Garden bricks are available in the following sizes:
