OXFORD—Give a unique gift and support the Oxford Area Recreation Authority (OARA) by purchasing a personalized brick for the dog park. You can have your name, a favorite pet’s name, or any slogan engraved on a brick that will be included in the paving of the dog park vestibule in spring of the new year.
Earlier this year, the new dog park opened at the Oxford Area Regional Park, 900 W. Locust Street. The attractive park has sections for small and large dogs, interesting obstacles for pets to explore and beautiful raised bed gardens in the secure vestiblue.
To provide solid footing, the entrance area will be bricked this spring when weather permits. To cover the cost of the project and continuing maintenance costs related to the dog park, OARA is offering everyone a chance to purchase personalized bricks that will be included in the paving.
Each standard sized brick, purchased for just $50, can be engraved with your message on up to four lines of print, each line containing up to 21 characters or spaces. The bricks make a nice memorial for a well loved person or pet. They can also be a sign of love and support to the living, a recognation of a personal accomplishment, or communicate any kind of personal message.
Larger, double size bricks costing $200 are perfect for businesses and organizations and may include up to six lines of message and/or a logo.
A personalized brick is a wonderful way to communicate a lasting message, and a great gift for the holiday season. To be sure everyone has a chance to get their order in before Christmas, brick sales have been extended to Dec. 31, 2018.
