Bench at Lake Harriet with custom engraving
Adoption of a Lake Harriet Bandshell bench brings with it the following:
- The engraving of your message on the topmost of the bench slats.
- Repairs and maintenance to the bench as needed by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board during the 10 year period.
The slat with your 40 character inscription will remain in place for a period of ten years from adoption. At that time, you will have the option to renew your adoption of the bench for a subsequent five-year or ten-year period. Cost of that second five-year adoption will be an additional donation of $400.00. Cost of a second, ten year adoption would be $800.00.
We estimate the useful life of the current, refurbished benches to be about twelve years. It is our hope that using the renewal donations will enable maintenance and/or replacement of the wood so that they will not fall into decay.
For tax purposes we consider your adoption of this bench a donation to People for Parks, where no goods or services were received by you above the engraving cost (nominal value $100 per slat).
Additional slats of 40 chars available, $100 per slat and must be purchased separately.
All engraving will be in capital letters and centered.
Please Note: Once you submit your order you are confirming that the text you have submitted is correct and no additional changes will be made. Bench slats cannot be altered or returned after submitting your order.
