For those of you who have purchased bricks or visited
the Alumni Park you have seen more than 350 bricks
permanently installed in the sidewalk. We currently have
some bricks that have not been installed but will as
soon as weather permits. The current batch will feature
an 8” x 8” brick with the town seal, and the date of
founding and the date 2013 on the sides of that brick.
Also immediately under that brick will be our town
This program is 6 years old and
nearing completion. Last year the company that produced them for us
was sold, and the new owners have been very good in meeting our
needs. The price to us has increased slightly; however we have not
raised the price to you. It is still $50 for a 3-line brick with 18

raise the price again due to manufacturing costs etc.
The company notified us of this so that we would have a chance to
let our potential customers know that an increase is coming.

It would be great if we could go ahead and complete the entire
sidewalk before the price rise. We have room for 150 more engraved
bricks. If you would like to consider purchasing a brick at this
time, and wish it to be a Christmas Gift for a family member, friend
or yourself please order now and we will send a Christmas card to
the recipients acknowledging that a brick has been purchased in his
or her name. Just let us know if you wish to have a card sent by us.
If you need help in forming the words on your brick please email me
and I will assist in that process. If you know what you wish to
include on the brick just write it out legibly and email it to me or
call me if you wish. Once you prepare your order and it is exactly
as you want it to look then you mail it along with your check made
payable to Alderson Main Street, P. O. Box 117, Alderson, WV 24910.
If you are working with me on the language for the brick then you
can simply send your check to Main Street and I will have the text
of your brick to be included in the order.

(Ps. Thanks to all of you who have helped make the Alderson Alumni
Park a huge success. I want everyone to know that this work could
have never been done without the “heavy lifting” of Ed Moody, Gary
Reed, Bobby Walkup, and Bobby Hoover, as well as most of the funds
