Members of the Bird Rock community gathered on Feb. 5 to honor Joe La Cava, a past president of the Bird Rock Community Council, and to celebrate his leadership and perseverance to make the Waverly Gate a reality.

A special plaque commemorating LaCava is featured in the center of the community wall located at the new Waverly entrance to the field behind Bird Rock Elementary.

Current BRCC president Joe Parker led the dedication ceremony, explaining the three-fold purpose of the wall: “To honor Joe, fundraise for Bird Rock Elementary, and connect the community together through a beautification project.”

Each tile was hand-stamped with the family name in memory of a loved one, or a child or pet to create a mini-collage. Fused glass decorations embedded in the wall were created by community members at Birdstock 2010, and mini tiles with the street names in Bird Rock are hidden throughout.
