ENGRAVED BRICK PAVERS: Selling engraved Brick Pavers is designed to raise funds for the Skatepark Project and provide donor recognition at the same time. The donor's name will be literally "set in stone'. We are using a finished Brick Paver that has a smooth surface and beveled edges with spacers on the sides - basically a "pretty brick". Bricks are engraved using the sandblasting technique to ensure a deep, clean and crisp engraving that will withstand the test of time. The engraved bricks will be installed in the walkway and / or entryway to the Skatepark or as
part of one of the skateable elements within the Skatepark. There are two different brick sizes based on donation amounts (see below) to ensure a way that everyone can support the Skatepark Project. For more information refer to the attached documents and forms below.
