Local Rotarians had already bought five benches with granite markers with about half of the $23,300 it began raising in 2005 to honor Rotary International's 100 year anniversary.

"Students learn about the different way a culture looks at death without the unnecessary dread or horror that we've seen in some societies," said Washougal High Spanish teacher Brian Eggleston.
