Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon and members of the Snohomish County DUI and Target Zero Task Force will unveil 13 tiles for DUI victims being commemorated on the DUI Victims Memorial Wall.
The unveiling ceremony will take place at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 6, at McCollum Park, 600 128th St., Everett.
The Snohomish County DUI Victims Memorial Wall is the first in Washington state. The initial unveiling of 45 tiles took place July 19, 2001. With this year’s additions, the front of the wall will include 125 Snohomish County DUI victims.
“Families would rather have their loved ones alive and well than a marker on a memorial wall,” Reardon said. “However, until these senseless and avoidable tragedies stop, we must continue drawing awareness to them.”
The names on this year’s tiles are:
Bradley Daniel Agerup
Melissa Ann Agerup
Douglas C. Allen
Sheena M. Blair
Jeanette M. Cline Manske
Janelle Louise Cooper
Kurt Emery Gessner
Joshua Michael Haggerton
Elisa Kay Older
Martin A. Ramirez
Hilda Margarita Woods
Thomas Jeffrey Woods
Family and friends are invited to attend the memorial ceremony.
