Blue & Grey Brick Patio to Be Dedicated

The new Blue & Grey Brick Patio at Rocco Calvo Field will be dedicated September 12.

The new Blue & Grey Brick Patio at Rocco Calvo Field in the Steel Field Complex will be dedicated at the first home football game, September 12, when the Hounds take on McDaniel College. Everyone who purchased a brick and all members of the Blue & Grey Club are invited to a tailgate celebration party to be held on the new patio. The festivities will begin at 11:30 a.m., before the game, and resume at half-time.

For the past several years, the Blue & Grey Club and Rebecca Masteller, assistant director of Moravian Fund Athletics, have worked hard to make the 24'x64' patio a reality. The patio will be enjoyed at football, lacrosse, and track and field events. The club raised funds by offering engraved bricks to donors. By joining the Blue & Grey Club at the Silver and Gold giving level, members had the opportunity to personalize a 4"x8" brick. Members who gave at the Platinum level were able to personalize a large 12"x12" brick.

To date, fifty bricks have been engraved and added to the patio, but there's room for many more names. The bricks are a great way to honor a loved one's birthday, graduation, anniversary, or other occasion. (Engraved bricks will be added in groups of fifteen to twenty, not individually.)
