Those wishing to own a piece of Gaithersburg history and help raise money for Gaithersburg High School can buy one of the bricks used in the original construction of the school in 1951.
Gaithersburg High’s Student Union, a mentoring and service program operated by the city, is coordinating the sale. The bricks were salvaged during the demolition of the old school, which was replaced by a new building that opened its doors to students in the fall.
Only 300 bricks are available, and each will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Each costs $20.
Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Gaithersburg High School Education Foundation, the Character Counts! Scholarship Fund and other city youth programs.
An order form is available at gaithersburgmd.gov. The bricks can be bought at the Bohrer Activity Center, 506 S. Frederick Ave. For more information, contact Maura Dinwiddie at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-258-6350, ext. 168.
