BELDING — With a goal to construct the Belding Freedom Wall sometime in May, Belding resident and veteran Denny Craycraft will be fundraising throughout the week at Leppink’s Food Center in Belding, offering residents the chance to embed themselves in the grounds of the monument by purchasing a brick which will be placed just outside the monument.

Bricks are available for a total of $50 and can be customized to your liking. They will be placed in front of the Freedom Wall monument, as well as other monuments constructed over time. For a donation of $35 you can receive a booklet instead of the brick, featuring the history of the original freedom wall that was decommissioned in 1948.

Craycraft will fundraise inside Leppink’s Food Center through Friday of this week. He will be there from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
