WIth $25,000 in donations and permits in hand, the Leschi community is preparing to start work on the memorial to Officer Tim Brenton, killed in the line of duty on October 31st last year.
Work will begin on Saturday morning at 10am with a community work party to get the project under way. Memorial organizers are asking people to bring shovels, pick-axes, gloves, and muscles to the corner of 29th Avenue & Yesler. They’re also looking for heavy construction equipment such as pickup trucks, a jack-hammer, and a chainsaw.
The work will continue until 2pm, with lunch provided on site by Blu Water Bistro.
