Honored by Polynesian friends

West Valley City’s Polynesian community presented a monument to Sen. Karen Mayne at the Samoan Heritage Festival Saturday in Centennial Park in honor of the late Senator, Ed Mayne.

The monument, imported from India and donated by Etched in Stone owner Wallis Burnside of Ogden, will be displayed at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley City. It features a head shot of Ed Mayne and a series of logos. One is a heart representing the senator, “whose compassion for the people in this community inspired the development of this (Polynesian Youth Group) program,” Ioelu said.
