"Memorial Woods-The Eternal Flame is a beautiful bronze sculpture designed by noted artist Fran Volz. We feel that the Flame represents our community’s eternal remembrance of the service and sacrifice of veterans and their families.
Standing 15' tall, the Flame has been installed at the center of Memorial Park – surround by the veterans’ commemorative bricks. The Flame stands on a granite base with five sides. Eventually, each side will have an inscription. The first inscription reads “Because of our heroes and their families, freedom survives”.
At night, the Flame has soft internal lighting that sends an inspiring message. Many have said that the Eternal Flame will be one of the most memorable images of Arlington Heights.
To date, all but $25,000 cost for the Eternal Flame sculpture has been funded. Donations for the Eternal Flame sculpture can be made using the Memorial Park Brochure and Brick Order Form and follow the directions on the form or by contacting Greg Padovani, Chairman, Drive to Revive Memorial Park Committee at 847-392-9113."
