A memorial bench with a shaded view of the White River was dedicated and installed yesterday with contributions from the Scott Tegarden Memorial Fund at The Riviera Club. A second bench will be installed in the coming week to a high bank overlooking the Indianapolis Arts Center launch and the Monon Trail.
