An important memento was saved from a wall of cinder blocks painted by the RSS Class of 1997 inside the old RSS building. A brick hand-painted by Brianne Wolgram was carefully chiselled out of the wall by a member of the Graham Construction crew and presented to Brianne’s mom Sheryl Wolgram on Nov. 1. Brianne went missing from Revelstoke on the night of Sept. 5, 1998. Her abandoned car was discovered five days later on Echo Lake Road. Sheryl thanked the workers for taking the time to save the memento and said she hoped the event would help keep hope and memories of Brianne alive.
