The Community Memorial Bench at the Carousel of Happiness

brandon bryk Brandon Bryk, a long-time local Nederland resident, was a man with great passion and loyalty, whose life was exemplified by the motto “Live, Laugh, Love.” Brandon’s family and friends were the most important thing to him.

The Community Memorial Bench, inspired by Brandon, is dedicated not only to him, but to all of those within our community who we have loved, but are no longer with us.

The family, the Carousel of Happiness, and Marion Reynolds (the creator of the bench) have come together on this project to fulfill that vision.

The Community Memorial Bench will be placed in the Carousel of Happiness building, a place near and dear to the community.

We are accepting donations for the creation and installation of the bench. We hope that all residents who would like to memorialize a friend or family member will consider donating.

The bench will be metal, with the Sun, Moon, and Tree of Life incorporated into the design. A memorial plaque will be hung above it and all donors will be recognized.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to cover all expenses associated with the creation, installation and dedication of the bench. Please help us make this a reality by clicking the donate button here, or by sending your donation to:
