May 12th Memorial for Vlad
I received this from Eric last night:
>>I plan on having people gather at 1 PM on Saturday, May 12th. I figure that people will be here by 1:30, and at that point, IÂd like to start by recounting stories and memories of VladÂs life.
So I'm putting my thoughts together.
>>WeÂre going to plant trees, with VladÂs ashes, and a friend from Japan who will be in town will play a piece on the shakuhachi. Then IÂm going to put up a name sign for the farm. IÂve finally found a good name for it: the "Second Chance Farm." IÂll tell the story of that name as my contribution. Then weÂll have a toast and then have BBQ.
>>Can you bring some baked good Â a bread or a dessert? ThatÂs what I hope people can contribute.
>>See you on May 5th (at the swap).
I hope you're all planning to come. It will be a beautiful time to be in the country. Vlad was always so proud of his gardens and loved having visitors.
Let me know if you have any questions or need directions, etc. Again, my email from Gardenweb doesn't seem to work, so I'm Christine at EveningsFall dot com.
