Great news! Today I got an email from Peggy at the SNM saying that our family tile (brick) has finally been installed! [^]

I picked out this spot at the right front corner of the monument that sits in the center of the area just outside of the front showroom double glass doors, when we were in South Bend for the 2007 International Meet.

Oh, by the way, she sent me a picture of it, and to my surprise they just placed two new tiles for my former Chapter: Orange Empire Chapter, right next to ours! [^]

I encourage you all to consider buying a brick or two, to help pay the debt on the new building and the day to day expense of maintaining our wonderful new Museum, it is a tax deductible IRS authorized gift. There are also several affordable sizes. :)

Here it is!

Congrats to you both as this is a great way to support not only the SNM but also the hooby and its future. Hopefully soon I can follow suit and do the same thing.

That's great Rich.

Last summer we raised enough money to buy a brick for my friend, Sam Miller, who died in 2002. He was the person who left me his Studebaker model collection, and his Studebaker parts and cars.

This is where the bricks are placed in front of the door of the museum.

I forgot to mention- while we were there during the meet last Summer, we even got to pick our spot. We had no idea the 'powers that be' from OEC SDC would pick the one right next to ours, though. How cool is that!?!?!?

Leonard,
That commenorative brick is certainly a fine tribute to Sam Miller. Thanks for posting the two photos. Had the chance of seeing that nice brick forecourt to the Studebaker Museum last June at the SDC International.

Thanks. I don't want to hijack Rich's thread, but we had 44 people to contribute to the Sam Miller brick, including John Clements from Australia. :)
