Engraved bricks will help build Trades and Technology Centre

Yorkton, SK – Parkland College is kicking off a campaign offering engraved bricks to individuals, families, community groups, and businesses as a way to help build the Trades and Technology Centre in Yorkton. Sales began at Yorkton Spring Expo Apr. 12-14.

The bricks will be included in the construction of the Trades and Technology Centre. A feature wall in one of the facility’s wings will display the community’s engraved bricks.

“Colleges build communities and communities build colleges. The Brick Campaign is an opportunity for individual community members and groups to join Parkland College in building the foundation of the Trades and Technology Centre and the foundation for our communities,” said William Litchfield, Director of Advancement at Parkland College.

Bricks will be sold at two price points: $100 for a 4” x 8” brick and $250 for an 8” x 8” brick. Each brick purchased is eligible for a charitable receipt. Buyers will receive a charitable receipt for $50 with each 4″ x 8″ brick purchased, and a charitable receipt for $200 with each 8″ x 8″ brick.

Order forms are available at reception at the main campus in Yorkton. You can also buy online at the Giving section of this website.
