Memorial bench

PORT TOWNSEND — The public is invited to join Jefferson Healthcare officials and the Board of Directors of Disability Awareness Starts Here (DASH) for the dedication of a memorial bench in honor of Lynn Gressley on Friday, March 3, at 3 p.m.

The ceremony will occur at the new entrance to Jefferson Healthcare, located at 834 Sheridan St.

Gressley was a Port Townsend resident who, as DASH president, led efforts to raise awareness of the need for accessibility in public facilities and businesses.

While a patient at Jefferson Healthcare, Gressley experienced the challenges patients with disabilities face as well as the potential for accessibility improvements at the hospital, according to a news release.

The bench was funded by donations from locals.
