The curtain-raiser for the 50th Anniversary celebration is an engraved brick fundraiser. Proceeds from this campaign will be used to help fund the 50th Anniversary Commemorative Yearbook currently under development. (More on that topic shortly, in Newsletter #8). Please help celebrate Monmouth Rugby’s 50th Anniversary
by purchasing a brick for the walkway between the deck and the garage at the Wilde Rover.
Literally etch your name in the club history, or celebrate teammates or a memorable event.
4″ x 8″ and 8″ x 8″ bricks are available for $50 and $100, respectively. Order a personal copy of your inscribed brick(s) at a reduced rate!
