Next step in Brenton Memorial takes shape at 29th & Yesler

We stopped by 29th & Yesler today to see how the Brenton Memorial was shaping up after last Saturday’s big community work party.

The planting strip is fully excavated, and this week workers have made progress in building the border of the memorial using stone pavers. That work is scheduled to be finished in the next few days, and then next week a local memorial company will donate time and materials to build the stone badge that is the key feature of the design.

The memorial is a grassroots community project in remembrance of Officer Tim Brenton, who was murdered at 29th & Yesler on October 31st of last year.

The next opportunity for volunteers will be on Saturday October 23rd, where help will be needed to put the finishing touches on memorial before it’s dedication at the end of the month. Stay tuned for more details on that soon.
