The Story of the Memorial Bench in Park
Many people have been asking about what the memorial bench is about that will be placed in the dog park soon. Two young men Mason Oakes and his cousin and best friend Ryan Jensen, of Yuba City needed to earn their Eagle Scout. They chose to assist the dog park by building the wooden benches that are in the park now and planting trees for the park. Sadly in 2017 both were killed in a car accident by a drunk driver. The Recology of Yuba City donated money wanting to have a bench put in the park in memory of the two of them.
We are so grateful that they chose to help the park and to be a part of our lives so we are preparing to have the bench put in as soon as it is ready. The cement slab is in, the bench should be done in a week or so and then it will be properly anchored into the cement. We will then plan a date for a ribbon cutting and a thank you in memory of these two young men. So stay tuned for dates for this special day.
