Please Support Our Brick Walkway Fund Raiser!

Your support is needed to help raise monies to fund capital projects required to refurbish and make improvements to the Chapter House. While many improvements have been made over the past 10 years, additional renovations are needed for the basement, front porch, back deck, and individual bedrooms.  We are looking to replace the front walkway with bricks / pavers that will be engraved with Alumni's names. Click one of the bricks below to donate that number of bricks:

Other Details:

Bricks will be installed by graduating year, starting at the house with our founders and proceed towards the sidewalk.


 * Each engraved brick will cost $125, with $25 of the cost to cover the brick and engraving and the balance to cover the cost of the new walkway and other Chapter House renovations.


 It will be important that we get all alumni involved initially in this fund raiser so that the bricks can be grouped by graduating class. It would be helpful to have someone step forward from each graduating class to help coordinate their class.


 After the installation of the sidewalk, we are planning to install bricks annually for the new graduates, and any other donations for the year. A ceremony tied to an alumni event at the house will welcome in the new graduating class. New graduates will be have their bricks installed the year following graduation, rather than immediately after graduation in order to give them a chance to get situated in their new job and finances.


 * Willow Tree Florist & Landscaping (www.willowtreefnl.com), Potsdam, NY will be doing the installation. Below are some pictures from the Potsdam Hospital where they installed bricks for a fund raiser. Our bricks will use the running bond pattern going down the length of the walkway. We will also engrave all bricks, rather than just the border here in the picture.

The list below is updated nearly once per week and is current as of 7/08/16. Individuals with a $0 next to their name had a member(s) make a donation in honor or memory of them. If you do not see a donation listed that you already made or the information is not correct, please contact JimDreyfuss@Comcast.net.
