Seaford artist designs logo for historic hotel, set to open Nov. 5 On target for its grand opening on the day before Return Day, the restoration of the Brick Hotel on The Circle in Georgetown is progressing as planned, said owner Lynn Lester. “My vision for this historic structure is really taking shape, and it’s extremely exciting to see it all finally coming together,” Lester said. The Brick Hotel will open its doors as the “new” Brick Hotel On The Circle on Nov. 5. Guests will enjoy a gala reception celebrating the opening of this restored National Historic Registry property. The first guests will be invited to sign a guest registry that will be preserved for historical records. Ten out of 14 rooms are already reserved for the first night and the first paid guests are Bob and Diana Lawson of Harbeson, close friends of Lester and her husband, Ed. On Thursday, during the Return Day parade, townspeople will once again — much like the old postcards depict — see inn guests enjoying the scene from the second floor veranda, overlooking The Circle. “The hotel will be closed to the public for Return Day,” Lester said. “We will cater exclusively to our guests that day, including those businesses that have chosen to use our facility for their Return Day open houses. Our doors will open to the general public on Friday, Nov. 7, with a separate grand opening celebration soon after.” Lester had hoped that the logo for the

Laura Pritchett’s winning logo for The Brick Hotel on the Circle in Georgetown.

new hotel would be designed by someone with local roots. This wish came true with logo design contest winner Laura Pritchett, who was born and raised in Seaford, Lester’s hometown. Pritchett is the daughter of Mark and Anne Allen of Seaford and is the granddaughter of Floydie Sabo and the late Jim Sabo. Pritchett lives in Seaford with her husband, Nicholas. “Her ideas were original, well thought out and kept the history of this building in the forefront,” Lester said. “The first logo she submitted for the hotel blew me away, but wasn’t conducive to my needs. I purchased the sketch from her and will be making prints of it available to the general public — it’s truly special and won’t be revealed until our gala grand opening.”

The winning logo for the hotel is a simplified map of The Circle, with the center filled with a mariner’s compass. The Lester’s signature hospitality pineapple is placed over the compass, and a fleur-de-lis arrow on the compass points directly toward the location of the hotel. As the logo contest winner, Pritchett and her husband will enjoy a night’s stay at The Brick Hotel On The Circle and a three-course dinner for two at the hotel’s restaurant, the Tavern On The Circle. They

will also be VIP guests at the gala grand opening reception on Nov. 5. For reservations for the historical grand opening of The Brick Hotel On The Circle, visit www.thebrickhotel.com or call Lester at 855-5800 or toll free at 877-88BRICK.
