Alameda County One Hundred Club Memorial
The Alameda County One Hundred Club Memorial is a special multi-piece memorial we designed to help commemorate the lives of all Firefighters and Police Officers lost in the line of duty. Made out of our finest black and grey granite, this memorial features a fire helmet and a police cap resting on the black granite benches viewing the monument. Those custom-engraved pieces are made to represent each branch of those brave men and women listed.
As a larger installation, this One-Hundred Club Memorial can be found near the mausoleum in the Lone Tree Cemetery, in Hayward California.
Here is a little Snippet From The Alameda County One Hundred Club Website:
In 1974, the Alameda County 100 Club was founded by Martin Kauffman, a retired land developer. Martin had taken a trip to Chicago and was impressed when he learned about the 100 Club there. That same year, two young police officers were shot and killed at Oakland’s Madison Jr. High School. Without hesitation, Martin gave the two widows of the slain officers $1,000.00 each from his own pocket. He then got a group of friends together and formed the Alameda County 100 Club. One man’s vision, kindness, and generosity have made a difference in many lives.
