The Commemorative Brick Program was created in 2013 to provide people with an opproutnity to honor, remember, give thanks or just express themselves in a meaningful way. The Memorial Plaza was designed to house 14 brick "containers", each of which houses 18 commemortive bricks.
When the program is fully subscribed a total of 252 bricks will have been installed. As of May 1, 2016 a total of 177 bricks have been purchased and installed. A new round of sales opened on May 5, 2016 and will be run until December 31, 2016. After that date, the order will be made for purchased bricks which will be installed in Spring 2017. The program is adminstered by the Grafton Planning Department in conjunction with the Mill Villages Advisory Committee.
Proceeds from the program are deposited into a special gift account established by the Board of Selectmen. Funds are used to support the ongoing managment of the park as well as for providing free recreational programming for all to enjoy.

People who have purchased a brick and would like to find its location will want to use this map and the the "Brick Locations List Sorted by Last Name" list. This provides an alphabetical list of all people who have purchased bricks though May 1, 2016. All of these bricks have been installed at the park. The next round of bricks will be installed in Spring 2017.
