    I’m sorry I’m not able to attend the memorial. I met Don in the late 1970’s. He had unforgettable parties and fun to be around. I was fortunate to be on a canoe trip he helped organize for a group and to this day I remember it was nothing but fun and laughs. He was a kind man and always had a smile for you.

    We have reached our maximum capacity on dinner space of 100 people. Anyone that did not RSVP prior to August 7th cannot be guaranteed a chair at a table or food unless we have “no shows” due to unforeseen events. However, feel free to come and take your chances and/or see the program on Don at least which will probably start about 6:45. There will be plenty of time to visit with attendees after the program.

    I apologize for any inconvenience.
