Engraved brick orders are still being taken at Olcott Beach Carousel Park. Engraved bricks can commemorate a special occasion, honor someone, remember a loved one, or just to be a part of the park. The price for a 4 x 8 inch brick with three lines of up to 14 characters is $100. An 8 x 8 inch brick with six lines of up to 14 characters is $200. The park needs at least 25 brick orders in order to install the bricks and they are currently taking orders only. Once the park has received 25 orders, you will be contacted for payment. Any questions can be directed to Rosemary Sansone at 778-7066. Brick order forms can be downloaded from the park’s website at olcottbeachcarouselpark.org.

The Newfane Lions would like you to start looking for 2014’s Outstanding Adult and Youth.
