Thompson offers donation of Vermont Verde stone to border wall project

Vermont Verde Antique Medallion[5]Vermont Marble, Granite, Slate & Soapstone Co., a Vermont- and New York-based custom stone manufacturer, has proposed to donate medallions of the world famous Vermont Verde Antique stone, quarried in Rochester, Vt., to “The Border Wall Project.”

Owner, Paul Thompson said, “It would be an honor to donate something so very beautiful and God-given to enhance the wall’s look with something so natural and spectacular.”

He also said that the medallions would definitely “add a touch of class” to the wall.

His proposal is to supply over 2,000 square feet of 4”x4” polished Vermont Verde Antique medallions, to be attached on every 10th segment of the wall. “The medallions will represent a small window, a window of opportunity for those that truly do want to come to the great land of America, and hopefully some day become legal citizens,” Thompson said.

Thompson sent his proposal to President Trump, and the designers of the wall.
