Nemont Resident Gordon Olson Saves Martha Luck Memorial Bench
Everybody at Nemont Manor enjoyed the comfortable wooden bench at the end of the sidewalk, but it was getting weathered. People were afraid it would fall apart, and that was a shame, since it was a memorial to a resident, Martha Luck. Gordon Olson, a Nemont Manor resident since 2007, decided to rescue the bench.
Olson disassembled the wooden slats from the iron sides. The Manor’s maintenance man, Jeff Roberton, cut oak for the new slats, which Olson sanded, stained and mounted back onto the iron sides. The brass memorial plate was brought back to a high shine by Baker’s Jewelry.
