The purpose of this brick fundraiser is three-fold. First, it is being used to commemorate when Ovid and Elsie combined school districts in 1967 and became Ovid-Elsie Area Schools. The joining of the two villages commenced with the building and opening of the middle school and high school. The O-E Memorial Monument gift bricks will be inlaid at the football stadium, at the schools’ site. Second, it is being used to replace four sections of slate at the football stadium. This will take time to do as sections can only be done as bricks are sold and the revenue is generated to fund each section. The third is to generate enough revenue to not only replace the four sections of slate, but also keep the monument maintained.
Purchasing a brick is a fantastic way to celebrate and remember anyone who has been associated with the Ovid, Elsie, and surrounding communities. There are 21 simple symbols, including O-E’s mascot, the Marauder, to choose from in an effort to personalize your gift brick(s) in any way you would like.
With your donation, you will be able to personalize a brick. Both upper and lower case characters may be utilized. There are four brick sizes which vary from the standard brick size of 4” x 8” available for $55 to the largest size of 24” x 24” for $575. Logos can be added on the larger bricks for an additional $75. The bricks come in hues of red and grey. They will be laser inscribed and epoxy filled with the color of your choice. The epoxy fill allows for a lifetime guarantee.
Please order your brick(s) through this website utilizing PayPal or the “Print Order and Mail Payment” option. This will ensure that your brick order is customized to your liking and not subject to typing/spelling errors.
