In a shady area between the Oakwood Inn and the Oakwood Event Center are three polished granite benches honoring Cole Brembeck, Howard Brembeck and Pastor Ken Robinson.
The benches were installed last September after a committee made up of Tom Prickett, Tammy Cotton, Ryan Mishler, John Stout and Ruth Miller was formed in 2015. The committee designed a brochure and did some advertising to sell brick pavers, which the benches sit on, to raise money for the benches.
“This was just to memorialize these three gentleman for their vision of the future. They’re the reason Oakwood is there. It turned out really nice.”
Beyone Landscaping did the layout for the benches.
Cotton said approximately 70 pavers were sold and they are still available for sale. Cost is $75 for each paver and there is room for two lines with 14 spaces on each line. Cotton said some put their family name, cottage name or in memory of a someone.
Order forms are available in the Chautauqua office or contact Cotton at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (574) 377-7543.
