Daniel's memorial funds

Memorial Bench for Daniel Installed

On July 24, 1999, Boy Scout 359 installed a park bench in Daniel's memory along the South Rim Trail at Roxborough State Park, ten miles south of Columbine. Installing Daniel's benchDaniel was once a member of the Boy Scout Troop that preceded 359. The bench was built by a Park volunteer. It was carried out to the site and installed by the Troop, which also built a path to the bench from the trail. A plaque identifies the bench. Roxborough is the Mauser family's favorite hiking area.

The funds for the bench and gifts for the volunteers were part of a memorial fund set up by the Colorado Association of Transit Agencies (CASTA). That fund has also helped pay for a bench and tree here in a neighborhood park and to keep this web site going for over a year.
