The Lebo-Owens Brick Tribute was conceived in January 2006 when Shiremanstown experienced double heartbreak: the sudden death of their respected Mayor, Dean Lebo, and the lung cancer diagnosis of beloved Chief of Police, Joe Owens. The vision of honoring these long-time servants of the Borough became a reality with the public dedication of the Memorial in August 2007. Brick orders continue to be accepted to expand the patio area in Memorial Park.
Proceeds benefit Summit Search and Rescue, a non-profit organization providing man trailing bloodhound teams to the Shiremanstown Police and other area rescue agencies. To order a brick you can download and print out Lebo-Owens Brick Tribute form and drop it off at the borough hall or for further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
