Part of the Society’s mission is to “honor and remember those who cleared the land, grew the crops, educated the young and to pay homage to those who fought in the wars and sacrificed their lives for something they believed in.” To fulfill this objective, a memorial brick walkway was installed at Bailey Memorial Park. Bricks may be etched to honor an ancestor, recognise a loved one, or show support by a corporation. The bricks come in two sizes: small (up to 3 lines/15 characters per line) are $50 and large (up to 6 lines/15 characters per line ) are $100.
If a logo or graphic is to be added to the large bricks, there is an additional fee of $20.
A personalized brick makes an ideal present.
