Brick by brick



Zach Moulton of Wells, front, and New Hampshire resident Tony Roy, back, work Monday to install engraved bricks at Kennebunk’s Waterhouse Center. The town has raised more than $37,000 from the sale of 378 bricks purchased by local residents and businesses to support the new events center, that opened last October. The first batch of bricks, delivered from a Florida firm, was installed by Moulton and Roy, who work for Berwick-based Stoneage Stone Works. According to Town Manager Barry Tibbetts, a ceremony to officially open the walkway is scheduled for this year’s May Day Festival. The town continues to take orders for new bricks, with semi-annual installations planned in the spring and fall. “We are extremely pleased by the sale of the engraved bricks,” Tibbetts said. “The generosity of the residents and businesses is wonderful. For those still thinking about the opportunity of purchasing a brick we encourage you to come and see the May Day event on May 2. There is room for your legacy.” At right, Roy lifts a stack of engraved bricks from a pile purchased so far by supporters.
