Chelsea Manning Memorial Bench

Hello All,

As we all know the Manning's have had quite the past couple of months with Chelsea's passing. In times like these it is a great thing to let people know that you are there for them and they are in your thoughts. With that being said Mackenzie thought of a great idea to memorialize Chelsea and have a place where the Manning's could go that would remind them of her and what she loved. So we are going to purchase a memorial bench in town and are going to place it in the Ft. Thomas Dog Park with this passage that Mr. Manning wrote with help from the family.

"Come Sit With Me, Be Inspired By Nature.
Laugh At The Dogs Playing, And Share A Moment With Each Other
In Loving Remembrance of Chelsea Manning"

The bench will cost a little over $1000 and since we have a bigger passage than what is allowed that will be extra.  I have put a goal of $1200 as I think that should cover it all and if not then I would be happy to make up the difference.  If there is a surplus of donations then the rest of the money will go to the Outdoor Adventures Club of Cincinnati.  No amount is too small to give, and I will make sure to keep track of everyone that has donated to make sure the Manning's know that this was a group effort from everyone that they have touched throughout the years.

If you have questions please feel to reach out.
