The Summit Project is a Living Memorial and ensures that Maine Heroes are NOT Forgotten. The mission of The Summit Project is to honor Maine’s newest war casualties and the faithful spirit of all Mainers. We empower that faithful spirit by asking new groups throughout Maine to take custody of the TSP Honor Display case and use it as an instrument to help recognize and pay proper tribute to the sacrifices made by Maine’s fallen. The case helps to hold, preserve and share the memories of our fallen heroes from Maine.
Organizations from all across Maine have taken the challenge to assume the duty of “standing watch” over a select number TSP stones in this Honor Display case. (See bottom of this page.) The case will remain secure, and a sense of curiosity will bring new people to discover TSP, understand our mission but most of all learn about the lives of our fallen heroes.
Our mission with the Honor Case is to elevate awareness of TSP as a Living Memorial and honor our fallen by allowing the communities they died for to honor them through awareness and faithfulness. We want to reach as many Maine organizations and Maine citizens as possible, asking them to be part of the Living Memorial.
Please sign up today by writing to email@example.com . Thank you Maine and thank you for ensuring that MHANF.
