The community capped off months of planning, donations, and hard labor on Saturday as about twenty people braved the weekend rain to put the finishing touches on the memorial to fallen officer Tim Brenton. The group included neighbors, community leaders, and members of the Seattle police force.
All of the stonework for the memorial was installed on Thursday of last week, leaving landscaping and cleanup of the surrounding area for community members to finish up on Saturday.
A plywood shell covers the main feature of the memorial, and will stay in place until the memorial is formally dedicated on the one year anniversary of Brenton’s murder next Sunday.
What is the time of the dedication next Sunday?
29th Ave from Yesler to Spruce and E Yesler Way from MLK to 31st will be closed to car traffic from 1pm to 4pm. People may park @ Leschi Elementary School
