Bench to commemorate Tommy Z.
Fifth-graders at Methow Valley Elementary School are calling for proposals from local artisans to design and build a bench commemorating Tom Zbyszewski, a Methow Valley native who died in last summer’s Twisp River Fire while working for the U.S. Forest Service.
The bench should be designed to incorporate a picture of Zbyszewski and one of his favorite poems, and should be sturdy enough to be outside.
Those interested can submit a design proposal, including estimated materials and labor costs, to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org by Jan. 15. Students will select a design. Dedication of the new bench is tentatively scheduled for May.
