Sale of Cape May-Lewes Ferry 50th anniversary bricks approaches April 21 deadline
Cape May-Lewes Ferry officials announced April 14 that its 50th anniversary commemorative laser-engraved bricks are selling fast, and only a week remains for customers to order bricks to be part of the dedication ceremony scheduled for late June. These legacy bricks will be installed in a decorative pattern at the entrance of both ferry terminals. Brick reservations continue through Monday, April 21.
“We’re extremely pleased with the level of interest in our legacy brick program,” said Heath Gehrke, director of ferry operations. “It’s exciting to see so many customers and fans who want to be part of our 50th Anniversary Celebration. The legacy brick program is really catching on, and we hope everyone who wanted to be part of this unique opportunity doesn’t miss the boat!”
Gehrke added that the legacy bricks have been used in a variety of ways. “We’ve received brick orders containing happy birthday wishes, remembering a great family vacation at the shore and even a marriage proposal,” Gehrke said. Other personalized brick messages include happy anniversary wishes, memorialize a loved one, or honor a great employee.
The bricks are available in one standard size. A 4-by-8-inch brick will cost $50, and buyers will have the opportunity to personalize it. The bricks have a three-line capacity for text, with a maximum of 20 characters per line including spaces and punctuation. In addition, replica and mini-bricks can be purchased as family keepsakes for $50 and $15, respectively.
Corporate brick sponsorships are also available using an array of two or four standard bricks at a cost. The Cape May-Lewes Ferry will hold a dedication ceremony to unveil the commemorative brick designs at the ferry terminals in late June.
