Westside Community Park offers commemorative bricks


LAKEPORT, Calif. – The first offering of commemorative bricks to be placed in the Memorial Grove at the Westside Community Park will come to an end on Feb. 28.

Currently, 59 bricks have been purchased by individuals and community organizations according to Westside Community Park Committee Financial Officer, Carol Thorn.

The commemorative bricks will be the newest addition to the park’s Memorial Grove, located at the entrance to the Jane Barnes Field.

The grove currently consists of 12 oak trees, a beautiful tile mosaic sign honoring those represented by the trees, created by local artist Chris King, and a bench donated by the Clear Lake Trowel & Trellis Club.

The 4-inch by 8-inch red bricks can be etched with up to three lines of text in remembrance or recognition of an individual or group chosen by the purchaser.

The cost is $100 per brick.

Purchasers will receive a receipt for the tax-deductible portion of their contribution in the amount of $82.50.

The Westside Community Park Committee is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation.

According to Thorn, bricks can be ordered through the end of February in one of two ways.  Information and an order form are available on the WCPC website at .

Orders also can be placed by contacting Westside Community Park Committee Chair Dennis Rollins at 707-349-0969 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

“This is one way the community can assist with landscaping the park while providing a lasting remembrance of someone or something special,” Thorn said.
