Make your name stick with a golden brick

Members of the Blind Brook community have been given the opportunity to carve their names into the history of the school district.
Opening its doors in September 1973, the Blind Brook High School building started operating as the middle and high school in 2002. Now midway through its 50th school year, the district is looking to commemorate its golden anniversary with a celebration sometime in May.
Ahead of the event, however, the Friends of Blind Brook Fund, a nonprofit organization that was formed to support athletics, physical education and student well-being, has begun selling decorative gold bricks that will adorn the walls of the vestibule at the school’s entrance.
Each brick is being sold for $150 and can be engraved with a personalized message—so long as it’s appropriate for display in the school and within the character limit.
Additionally, donors can choose to purchase keepsakes, ranging from $10 to $40, such as a miniature replica of their brick, including the inscription.
Board of Education member Scott Jaffee, a founding member of the Friends and current Blind Brook board member, said the money will be going towards the district’s athletic fund.
The bricks can be purchased at bricksrus.com/donorsite/friendsofblindbrookfund. The first order deadline for the blocks is Tuesday, Feb. 6, though the Friends intend to continue sales throughout the year. Any questions can be emailed to [email protected].
