A Ghost Bike will be installed for Dion Harris at Grand and Kolmar on Saturday Morning at 10 A.M.
Dion was struck and killed on Sunday May 2.
A Facebook announcement is here:
It's login-only, sorry. There are currently 67 marked as attending among family, friends, classmates.
Do you meet there, or do you ride with the bike from somewhere else (WTB?)
I may not be able to attend due to a plumbing/landlording crisis, depending on what happens tomorrow.
Maryann, the mother of a classmate of Dion's (the owner of the facebook page) was instrumental in reaching out and doing the organizing for Saturday morning.
Unfortunately I will not be able to be there either. I have another commitment all day Saturday.
My thoughts are with the family/friends and I'm there in spirit.
This is going to be kind of a big affair. Police assistance and 2 alderman are supposed to be there.
Marianne and family did an amazing job.
I captured some wonderful coverage from Univision. Will post it hopefully tonight.
