October 30, 2019 -- The City of Highland Park has extended the opportunity to participate in the “HP150 Donor Brick Program”. A final round of brick order forms for personalized bricks to be placed the newly named Sesquicentennial Park at the intersection of Deerfield Road, Hickory Street, and Laurel Avenue will be accepted until November 18.
The donor brick program was created to support the Sesquicentennial Celebration in 2019. All proceeds from the bricks are used to fund HP150 events and initiatives. The bricks purchased through the second round of the program will join the first round of bricks already installed at Sesquicentennial Park in the spring of 2020. The park also features the HP150 sculpture “Ingress” by artist Michael Szabo.
This unique and timeless opportunity recognizes individuals, schools, teams, or businesses with a brick, or a series of bricks, featuring a personalized message or name. The commemorative bricks are 4” x 8” crafted with a customized message rendered in deep-relief. Each paver can be inscribed with up to 3 lines and up to 13 characters per line. Each donor brick, including engraving, is $150.
