It’s spring and that means inscribed bricks are for sale at the Hattie Weber Museum. This year, in addition to the summer wheat-colored border bricks honoring mothers grandmothers and other extraordinary women, red bricks are available to honor individuals, organizations and businesses.

The red bricks have three lines for text, with 15 characters/spaces per line. The price of both bricks is the same, $50. For order forms or more information, visit the museum, 445 C St. in downtown Davis, on Wednesdays or Saturdays or call Mary Lee Thomson at (530) 756-0517. Orders will be taken through May 7 and the bricks will be laid this summer.

There’s another good reason to visit the museum this week or next. The ”Davis Women in Public Service” exhibit will come down April 13. It features pictures and short descriptions of the political careers of local women in the state Legislature, the Yolo County Board of Supervisors, the Davis City Council and the Davis Board of Education.

Local women who have served as Yolo County superintendent of schools also are featured. One, Harriet Lee, is responsible for the celebration of Mother’s Day in California.

John Lofland’s exhibit on the people of the 500 block of E Street in Old North Davis will remain on display.

The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays.
