D&D General Gary Gygax Park Bench Dedication

Today (Thursday 27th July) a dedication ceremony for a park bench dedicated in memory of D&D co-creator Gary Gygax is taking place in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, USA. The notice was posted by Gygax's daughter Heidi Gygax Garland.


Additionally, Gygax's wife Gail shared an image of a proclamation by the mayor of Lake Geneva announcing Gary Gygax Day. Thursday 27th July was Gary Gygax's birthday.

I have photos with that one.

It's pretty small. I thought he was talking about a "big" sculpture of some kind.
IIRC, they are planning a big sculpture with a stone table. The plaque is what currently exists (in addition to the newly dedicated bench, of course).

Kind of feels like it would be cool to have the plaque on a picnic table, so folks could come and run a game there in the park
These kind of civic memorials are a one size fits all approach typically, decided upon after bringing in paid consultants, public meetings, etc. City officials almost certainly don't want to open the can of worms by changing the agreed-upon process.
