‘Tribute Park’ Brick Sales Extended
The Chamber of Commerce of the Rockaways/Rockaway Partnership announces that the time to purchase bricks and benches to be installed in the new "Tribute Park" has been extended until May 31, 2003. The time was extended because of the large demand for both benches and bricks during the past several weeks.
In appreciation for a donation of $75.00, a name you select will be engraved on a 4" x 8" brick and for $100.00 on an 8" x 8" brick. In the event a brick is dedicated in the name of someone deceased, the "tree of life" will be etched on the brick instead of the phrase "in memory of". The bricks may include a few appropriate words as a tribute, but any wording must fit into the spaces allowed.
Benches, on a limited basis, are also available for purchase at $800.00 per bench. All reservations for a bench must be sent in writing, along with a check payable to The Rockaway Partnership. Anyone purchasing a bench will be contacted regarding the wording to be placed on the dedication plaque.
The brick sale forms can be downloaded from the Chamber of Commerce’s website, which can be found at (www.chamberof commerce.com), are available at the Chamber office (718-634-1300) and will soon be placed throughout the community.
