2005-10-14 / Columnists


By Joanie Omeste, Executive Director, Rockaway Chamber of Commerce

Joanie OmesteJoanie Omeste This column is for all the people who have so wonderfully contributed to Tribute Park by purchasing bricks. At the Chamber of Commerce office we have mini bricks that were ordered but never picked up. Below are the names on the mini bricks. The first section are the Memorial Bricks, which have the trees on them, they are listed by the name of whom the brick honors, not the purchaser. The second section is the commemorative bricks.

Many of these bricks are from a family, so I have listed a “family” name and not all the given names on the brick. Please note the list does not reflect the mini bricks that were already picked nor does it reflect bricks purchased without a mini brick... so although you may not see your brick listed, please be assured that the regular brick will be placed in the Park. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at the Chamber office (718) 634-1300. These mini bricks can be picked up from the Chamber during business hours, and I’d like to suggest you call ahead. Thank you and thank you again for your kind contributions.
