My thought for the day -
I hope the bench project gets to stay in Hydra. The location chosen and the bench area seems to be perfect. If not I would love to see it in Montreal. I would say it would be important to have it in a place Leonard's family would feel comfortable with. Here's hoping for Hydra!

Let's hope it will be Hydra, the place that's so meaningful both to LC himself and our community...

It's beginning to look like those of you lucky enough to go to Hydra this summer may get to see Leonard's birthday bench. I remember the thrill when we heard that he had read our names. I think of him a lot.

My sentiments exactly, Olwen! If I can't be there in person at least my name will be!

THE BENCH

I read every name.
I bow my head in gratitude.
