Planning for a Friday Morning Memorial for Neill Townsend to Raise Awareness about Dooring and Sharing the Road

****************************************************************

IMPORTANT NOTE

The date for the memorial has been changed to FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19TH.
We will meet from 8-8:30 am at the northwest corner of Wells and Oak Streets.

Here is the link to the event page.

****************************************************************

This is a new discussion based off of one of the threads of conversations in the discussion "Bicyclist killed at Oak & Wells Friday AM". Some folks were on board with the idea of holding a memorial on the morning of Friday, October 19th around the time the accident occurred, which would create the opportunity for it to serve as a chance to raise awareness about dooring and sharing the road at a high traffic time. Several people made good suggestions there. They are copied and pasted in a reply below.

If you have any suggestions or you're willing to help out, please comment here.

Once details have been worked out, I'll post it as an event.

Neill's co-workers at MINIMAL, Inc. We handed out all that were printed, and would like to produce some more, however they are expensive.  Hopefully we can get some funding for this - we are working on it!

Melinda,

Could you guys set up a site to donate to?  I'll throw in some money for a stack.

I started a new discussion with this link - thought we could "close out" the planning thread, but fine keeping it up, too, if preferable. Here's the new one:

The video with Neill's dad was very moving. If his nobility is any indication the world was shortchanged when Neill was lost.  I wish I could have been there but work responsibilities intervened this morning.

Thank you to everyone who worked together on this and to everyone who came today. This entire experience has been inspiring.

Per Sarah's suggestion, I'm going to close this discussion. She started a new discussion for media mentions and photos, please post those in that thread.

If you would like to help with anti-dooring education and awareness, check out this event. Even if you can't come to this meeting, you could add to the on-line discussion, and then maybe make the next meeting.
