ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Two Lee County organizations are giving people a chance to leave their mark on the community.
The Lee County Chamber of Commerce is selling commemorative bricks to complete the sidewalk in front of the old Lee County School Building. The Chamber buys the bricks in larger blocks and has set a deadline of January 15th for the next group they'll buy. The bricks are 45 dollars and a good way for community members to leave their mark.
"The bricks have about three lines, it's not a ton of information that you can put on there, but names and dates are pretty much what folks are doing," said Lisa Davis Marketing Manager for the Lee County Chamber of Commerce.
Students who also attended the historic high school that now house the Ninth Grade Academy can also leave their mark on the campus. The school is selling engraved bricks for 25 dollars to become part of a patio that will be used by students to come. The bricks will be sold through the end of the school year. You can contact both the Lee County Chamber and the Ninth Grade Academy for more information or to order the bricks.
