The Obetz Historians are selling Obetz commemorative bricks and Obetz Historians t-shirts as fundraisers.
The group’s mission is to preserve the history of “Obetz Junction” and “The Village of Obetz.”
The purchase of a brick helps fund the building of “The Obetz History Wall” or “The Obetz History Walkway,” which will possibly be located at the gazebo in Veterans Park. There will be more information on this in the future.
The Obetz Historians are a (501 c 3) non-profit, so donations are tax-deductible.
A $100 donation will purchase a 4×8 inch brick. A $250 donation will purchase am 8×8 inch brick. A $350 donation will purchase a 12×12 inch brick.
Veterans bricks will be gray with logos of the branch of military service. All others will be red.
Orders can be purchased and paid for at www.bricksengraving.com/obetz-historians.
Businesses are encouraged to buy bricks and provide a black and white high resolution logo to be used on their bricks.
Anyone with a connection to Obetz can buy a brick. The sooner the bricks are purchased, the more likely they will be on the wall or walkway that will be built. The group’s goal is 250 bricks.
