Rotary selling bricks to honor Etta Turner

PORT ORCHARD — The South Kitsap Rotary Club will be selling bricks with personalized messages that will be laid at Etta Turner Park on Bay Street in Port Orchard.

A 4×8 red brick is priced at $100, a 4×8 gold brick is $500.

Half of the proceeds from the sale of bricks, which is part of the South Kitsap Rotary Foundation Centennial Project, will be used to make needed electrical, structural and landscaping updates at the park. The remaining proceeds will be donated to Etta projects in Bolivia to be used for a humanitarian project consisting of vision, dental and clean water.

In 2004, the South Kitsap Rotary Club constructed Etta Turner Park to honor the memory of Etta Turner, a 16-year-old Port Orchard resident whose life tragically ended on a bus trip in the mountains of Bolivia as part of the Rotary Student Exchange program.
