A community party for three Tumwater football coaches who retired at the end of the season — Sid Otton, Pat Alexander and Steve Shoun — will be held Saturday afternoon at the Tumwater High School gym, 700 Israel Road SW.
The public event will begin with a social at 4 p.m., followed by a ceremony at 6 p.m.
“He has had an enormous impact on thousands of students and an entire community,” the Tumwater School District posted on its website.
As of Tuesday morning, an online campaign had raised more than $5,700 for a community retirement gift for Otton. For more information, go to thankyoucoachotton.com.
