‘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 ex-tended 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 a brick 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 Com-merce’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.
