Buy A Red Brick
In 2018 the Crocker Field Restoration Committee was looking for a way to raise some funds to support its efforts in the restoration of Crocker Field. The committee came up with the idea of giving Fitchburg High alumni and other interested parties a way to support their efforts through the creation of the memorial brick walkway. The main entrance to Crocker Field on Circle Street was in dire need of repair and the committee decided to undertake the project to both upgrade the entrance and generate a revenue stream.
“Besides being a great way to raise money for our cause at Crocker Field, the finished project will be a beautiful upgrade to how our main entrance looks,” CRFC Vice President Ray Cosenza said in an interview in 2018. “It will be the first thing people see when they enter Crocker Field.”
“Anyone who has ties to Fitchburg High or Crocker Field may want to purchase a brick”, says Cosenza.
“I believe that every alum will have interest in purchasing a brick, especially those athletes who competed there,” he said. “It is a relatively inexpensive way to support a great cause. And most (alumni) have a personal connection with Crocker Field, whether it be through athletics, band, the relays or graduation.”
