You still have time to order a brick for the front walkway in time for the dedication inlay for this year on Saturday November 15, 2014. This is the day for the Tag Sale in the Crocker Memorial Church and the Historical Trolley Tour with Sue Blue that morning….returning in time for the dedication.
The Historical Society of Sarasota County salvaged the bricks from Main Street and Lemon Avenue when the station depot was being demolished. We have them laid as the walkway into the 1882 Bidwell-Wood House, Sarasota County’s oldest surviving residence, for a lasting memorial.
You can honor anyone including yourself, or an event (marriage? Birth? Anniversary? Memorial?) with an etched historic brick. A donation of $100 or more creates a permanent reminder of your loved one and participation in Sarasota History. Each year the new etched bricks are laid in November to honor those who support Sarasota history with a dedicated brick in the walkway.
To have a brick etched for you, your family, or a loved one, simply contact Linda Garcia, our Site Manger, via phone at 941-364-9076 Mon-Fri 10 to 2, or 24/7 via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mastercard and Visa accepted, as are those old-fashioned things, checks in the mail! You’ll receive a personal invitation to our ceremony on our campus at 1260 12th Street (1/2 block east of Tamiami Trail), Sarasota, in Pioneer Park on Saturday November 15.
