With more than 3,000 engraved bricks covering Columbia's downtown waterfront, brick owners frequently encounter a challenge when trying to find a brick they bought from the Columbia Association. "We still get constant calls from residents interested in finding their bricks," said Keisha Reynolds, the association's manager of community relations and communications.
