GREEN RIVER– A memorial bench for late Green River teenager, Brett McKeehan, is being placed at Expedition Island and will be presented to the community Friday, August 23, at 5 pm.

In June, Brett’s dad, Steve McKeehan, and some loved ones approached the Sweetwater County School District #2 Board of Trustees about having something done in memory of Brett. As a result, members of the community stepped forward to help get something done to celebrate Brett’s life and remember him by.

Through some anonymous donors, a plan was put into motion to dedicate a bench to Brett. Steve, along with an anonymous donor, met with the City of Green River Parks and Rec Department to get a bench placed somewhere in the community. Green River Parks and Rec Director, Brad Raney, granted them permission to put it at Expedition Island.
