Building A Better Campus One Brick At A Time.

The SIU and its affiliated school in southern Maryland would like to remind everyone that you can still add your name or personal message to the Waterfront Park at the Paul Hall Center’s Lundeberg School in Piney Point. By donating and personalizing a walkway brick, you’re helping to make the waterfront as unique as the rest of the school.

This is your chance to leave a permanent mark on the campus, or recognize another individual or organization. Over 280 bricks have been donated to date, and have been engraved for many different reasons. The messages do not have to reflect any specific theme, and can relay any message you would like immortalized in brick.

For instance, your engraved brick may be for a particular lifeboat class, or an instructor, or a crew that performed a heroic rescue. You may want to honor the memory of a departed loved one, or some other person who helped you along the way. Or, you may want to salute a company or an individual that’s made a difference for the U.S. Merchant Marine.

How to Order

Bricks are available in two sizes, and ordering information is available online at We are offering a traditionally sized brick (4 inches by 8 by 2-1/4) with three lines of engraving for $125. A larger one (8 inches by 8 by 2-1/4) with six lines of engraving is available for $250; that same-sized brick may be ordered with a corporate logo and up to three lines of text (subject to space limitations based on the logo) for $300.

If submitting a logo, please note that it cannot be sent through the online order form. Logos (either in EPS, AI, PDF or high-resolution JPG, BMP or TIF format) should be emailed to [email protected]. Please include your contact information in your email.

If you have any questions about the bricks or the personalization process, feel free to email [email protected].
