SR2 Dedication Brick Fundraiser

The Sid Richardson Dedication Brick Fundraiser was designed to raise funds to replace all the Patrol Table Tarps at Camp 10 “Gilwell” with permanent shelters that blend with the architecture of the camp. Tables were placed in the center of each new Patrol Shelter. We are offering the Scouters of Longhorn Council an opportunity to purchase and engrave one or more of the “Dedication” bricks that ring each table. Click here to see the Brick Project or to Buy a Brick.
