some years ago the city of Akron was redoing a downtown park. to raise funds it sold bricks which one cd purchase to honor a family member. I no longer recall if it was for her birthday or Mothers Day but I got a brick for Mom because she was born in Akron.
a few years ago Santa Fe wantd to spruce up Cathedral Park & did the same kind of fundraiser. my friend Nancy Jane Cope purchasd a brick with my name on it as a Xmas gift.
& now all 3 of us have our own brick. Elyria has installd a veterans memorial around the old Civil War monument in Ely Park. 3 days ago Regina & I visitd Dad's brick.
